  • molto agitato

Sat, Sep. 05, 2020, 6.00 pm - 7.55 pm | Main Stage Premiere

György Ligeti/Johannes Brahms/Georg Friedrich Händel/Kurt Weill

molto agitato

Together with director Frank Castorf, we have developed a project that artistically responds to the new situation. Concert, song and music theatre provide the pieces of the evening: “Nouvelles Aventures” by György Ligeti, “Vier Gesänge” op. 43 by Johannes Brahms, Händel's “Aci”, “Galatea e Polifemo” and “Die sieben Todsünden” by Kurt Weill. Included are texts by Quentin Tarantino on sex and violence from “Reservoir Dogs”. Five soloists and a chamber orchestra are recapturing the Staatsoper stage after a forced break of almost six months. How we have experienced and still experience this time, how it throws us off balance and how it opens new spaces – that is what “molto agitato” stands for.
