The Blind
Worldpremiere by Richard France (NYC),  prologue (excerpt) for one actor.
2021 on September 18th at 5 pm,

We find ourselves with Barabbas - the prisoner released in the trial of Jesus - in a prison cell, shortly before his death, after an unexpectedly "given" life. In the light of his own fate, he poses the question of fear and anger, the question of the free will and the mutability of the myths and stories that shape a society.

Mozart's Commedia per musica permeades the characters and situations with his music. Between extraordinary confusions, we experience a world beneath the skin of the characters: between pent-up needs, humiliation, rebellion and triumph, lovers become hunters and are whirled with disillusions by their own fears and lies. "We all live between desire and fulfillment, between what we want and what we allow us to want, between who we are and who we would love to be," says director Martina Veh. "I'd like to take a look through the crack in a door into a dressing room, a "boudoir", where underwear still might be lying on the floor, sheets are still warm from bodies and a towel might have been forgotten under a bed or sofa."

ANDIAMO (part 1)
[ ahn-dyah-maw ]
[ ɑnˈdyɑ mɔ ]

Interjection Italian.
Let's go; Hurry up.

Premiere: Wednesday 03-07 21:00 Theater de Leeuw Leeuwensteinplein 1 Arnhem

In the foggy universe of an abandoned swimming pool…
a man in swimming trunks is sitting on the edge of a pool. We never see his face, just his
back. And there’s a pierrot. ‘Come on!’ The man doesn’t respond... Any which way he can
conceive, in various attempts and identities, the pierrot tries to persuade the man to move.
A dance of a devil. ‘Andiamo!’

Can a performer’s voice, without using any words, express something that

everyone worldwide immediately understands, feels and appeals to?

Inspired by Erwin Olaf's Berlin and Mozart's Don Giovanni,

we are making a short vocal, musical and visual research-performance.

Taha Karem tells us  - acompanied by Stephan Lanius - about his
own experiences in Germany, based on selected narratives
by Mullah Nasreddin - an historical oriental jester.


Taha met with neo-Nazis, members of PEGIDA and other

people of different extreme political orientations.
He has bravely exchanged with them amazing conversations.
Taha wants to fight stuck thinking and open up space for something new.
He has dealt with these questions for 25 years.


He fled from Kurdistan to Germany in 1993 and ever since he has been

standing between his own and the German culture.


Mullah Nasreddin is a legendary figure of oriental tradition.
With his winking short stories he breaks traditional thinking patterns

and rigid prejudices.

The philosopher Don Alfonso ran out of money and starts a casual bet with two young men: Alfonso wagers that all women are unfaithful, hence their girlfriends Fiordiligi and Dorabella if put to a test. The lovers are entirely sure of themselves. But what begins as a harmless game of disguise, suddenly ends at the altar for the new couples! But cruelty is inherent in this game of love and chance. None of the characters emerges unscathed from this game.


Composed in the year 1789, premiered in January 1790, Così fan tutte marks a significant historical turning point. Così fan tutte was Mozart’s third and final collaboration with the librettist Lorenzo da Ponte in the final year year of government of Habsburg’s Emperor Joseph II, by whom the opera was commissioned. It is also the first stage work of Mozart's after the French Revolution, whose political impact reached the Vienna’s Imperial Court with some delay and was subject of lively discussions in the Imperial House at the time. Cosi’s reception has always been complex. The opera was variously considered immoral, unfinished, cruel or simply odd since its 1790 premiere.

Peter Floch (Tenor: Boy Friend in Heart Sutra),

Aoife Gibney (Soprano: Daughter in Heart Sutra),

Monika Hügel/ Thérèse Wincent (Soprano: Girl Friend in Heart Sutra)

Two contemporary chamber operas are in many ways located between Asia and the western world: The Japanese composer Toshio Hosokawa (*1955) choosed the poem „The Raven“ of Edgar Allan Poe to create a mono-Opera for Mezzosoprano and 12 Players, (worldpremirere 2012 in Brussels). He found in the supject of the poem analogies to the japanese Nō-Theater. The story is about a mysterious night,  in which a man meets in his study room unexpectetly a raven, who becomes the medium to get into contact with his deceased lover.

The German composer Christian Jost (*1963) travelled since the 90s often to China and worked there with different Chinese orchestras. He was deep in contact with the Chinese musical tradition, when he and his librettist choosed a shortstory and the poem „The Love of a Falling Leaf“ by the famous chinese writer Zhang Ailing, for the chamber opera „Heart Sutra“, commissioned by the Taiwan International Festival (worldpremiere in Taiwan 2012). The action of "Heart Sutra" leads to the Shanghai of the 1930s and tells a mysterious love story between four people with surprising correspondences.


„In the autumn sun
on the cement ground
they sleep quietly together
the leaf and its love.“ (Zhang Ailing)

„And the raven, never flitting,
still is sitting, still is sitting
On the pallid bust of Pallas
just above my chamber door“ (Edgar Allan Poe)

For his whole life Johannes Gutenberg was an unswerving fighter in the daily struggle with church and nobility. Until today, Gutenberg’s most significant invention is still relevant: he invented the book printing with movable type. With his vision Gutenberg fundamentally revolutionized the concepts of knowledge and power of his time! And in what world do we live now, 500 years later? The digital age, with it’s “limitless” possibilities, has brought the analog age to an end, has left the Gutenberg Galaxy behind (?) It has made the world to a village, expanded our horizons into the endless and an unprecedented treasure of human creativity and caused a new anleashed dimension of creative process and vision. 

Consequently the Opera leads us from the limited daily life experiences of the historical character Gutenberg into our present world. We end up with an “Epilog in heaven”, where Gutenberg, in his historical real life called “Gensfleisch” (Goosemeet), meets Apple founder and Internet guru Steve Jobs to reflect time, human existence and the meaning of knowledge…

Born in 1942 in Mainz, Volker David Kirchner remains among the leading contemporary composers for more than four decades. He is one of the forerunners and companions of the avant-garde of the last third in the 20th century, but his musical expressions never deny the tradition: “Think forward and  be aware of your roots. Tradition is the filter into the future.” (Kirchner) Kirchner searches in “Gutenberg” again the struggle with a visionary and contradictory personality of the European late middle ages, as he did in his last work “Savonarola” premiered 2011 in Kiel.

The world premiere of Kirchner's Opera at the THEATER ERFURT is complemented by music of Johann Sebastian Bach in a first part of the evening - an homage and collage by Martina Veh and Gunnar Geisse (electronical composer) to the Digital World and Steve Jobs.
