Andrej Bagar Theatre – Great hall, Svätoplukovo námestie 4, 950 53 Nitra
Black magic as a cure for moral disintegration. Devastating freedom.
This production is based on a romanetto written by Ladislav Klíma, an original Czech philosopher, artist and author, a fellow of Franz Kafka with the look of Friedrich Nietzsche, about the decadent Prince Sternenhoch. The prince, in a fit of sulks, decides to marry a woman of inferior birth, unaware of the fact that his Helga is a witch. A unique combination of a low and high culture, of grotesque and horror, of lofty philosophy and the banal dullness of the original text, which composer Ivan Acher forged into an opera – but here, signers perform difficult parts suspended in tortuous poses on ropes and the orchestra is by no means classical. Contemporary opera has long not been as entertaining and captivating as this homage to an iconic and unrightfully overlooked author that is, to top it all, sung in Esperanto. After a long hiatus, opera returns on stage in Nitra, with a piece straight from the National Theatre in Prague that has earned a number of Czech critics awards.
This production was co-selected by the Spectator Programme Board of the Be SpectACTive! Project
