Show me your wonders

Show me your wonders is an anti-salvation story based on the fantastical opera Snegurotchka (Snowflakes) by Rimsky-Korsakov. The composer took up the myth of the Snegurotchka girl at the same time as Wagner’s Parsifal.

The Passers-By

On the journey called life, the protagonist (known as “The Lover”) is reminded of various experiences and long-suppressed events. The way we deal with the past and our relentless self-questioning lies at the centre of Nikolaus Brass’ opera – here, life is seen as a mesh of fleeting encounters and fragmented relationships.

Vanitas

Salvatore Sciarrino * 1947
Salvatore Sciarrino‘s Vanitas brings a „still-life“ onto the stage, halfway between mini-opera and chamber cantata. In his work, the composer seeks to illuminate in mysterious ways the symbolism of human transience.
