The Norwegian Chamber Orchestra presents a concert programme inpired bu the Baroque era's bizarre view on madness as entertainment.

The programme starts out with Telemann and Don Quixote, and continues via Purcell's Bess of Bedlam to Kurt Weill's Pirate Jenny. It will also pass through the dark nooks and crannies in the world of tango.
