Past Dates

Following the video opera ONE, presented last year by the Berliner Festspiele to wide acclaim, we will be presenting the premiere of a further work by Michel van der Aa in 2004. In HERE the music is developed in a series of acoustic spaces – audible, dreamed, imaginary and simulated.

The venues for the musical drama are set by a combination of dramatic means, electronic-acoustic methods and a sound track played in by computer technology. Protagonist of the piece is the wonderful soprano Barbara Hannigan, who delighted both audience and critics in ONE.
