SEASON 20/21

Part 2
Who is us?
Dear audience,

Whilst the official discourse concentrates mainly on one topic, for Spring 2021 we have now further developed various projects with artists with whom we had already come to agreements years ago, even if those projects now look rather differently. We present a schedule that consists of a combination of unexpected music theatrical productions: Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Jesus Christ Superstar for example or J.S. Bach’s Johannes-Passion – premieres that had to be cancelled but are now about to be repeated – operas in concert and further repertoire which intensively explores the question “Who is us?”. I am not sure if we want to be relevant to the system – but for our joint efforts of being human we are most definitely relevant, of that I am certain.

Yours sincerely,
Viktor Schoner
