Ja, Mai – the new festival 2022
A festival dedicated to early and contemporary musical theatre now comes to life in the 2021-22 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 straight 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 togehter. The origins of opera begin a dialogue with today’s musical theatre perspectives.
