Personal empowerment means seizing the right to do something, as Jesus did by seizing the right to chase the sinners from the temple. The young Caravaggisti took the liberty in their search for identity and individuality to break with the standards of the day with chiaroscuro stagings of lifelike and life-sized figures. On seven evenings, singers of the Bayerische Staatsoper’s Opera Studio will perform in the exhibition as part of a musical and scenic performance in front of the inspiring paintings and bring the Caravaggesque, deeply touching world of images to life. The extreme emotional states dramatically depicted by the painters and religious content with means of expression using music, movement and atmospheric lighting moods are innovatively interpreted and therefore a unique experience for the audience.
