Ja, Mai – the new festival 2022
A festival dedicated every spring to early and contemporary musical theatre now comes to life in the 2021/2020 season. The core concept of this new festival is contemporaneity, the placing of musical theatre in the present. At the same time, the festival traces contemporary musical theatre’s links with other genres and art forms, such as spoken theatre, the visual arts and dance. It also refers to the origins of musical theatre towards the end of the 16th century, linking yesterday, today and tomorrow with one another. The origins of opera begin a dialogue with today’s musical theatre perspectives.
