Melancholie des Widerstands

In the organizer's words:
A small town lives immersed in lethargy. The functioning of everyday life has become unpredictable and the future holds little hope.But the arrival of a mysterious circus with its bizarre characters promises diversion. The main attraction is a duke with three eyes. However, he is not interested in entertainment: he intends to destroy the people of the city ...

The libretto by Guillaume Métayer is based on the 1989 novel of the same name by the Hungarian writer László Krasznahorkai, who, as a narrative master of the apocalypse, created a black parable of the current situation in Eastern Europe with his novel. The French composer Marc-André Dalbavie is considered a representative of spectral music. His works mark the opening of contemporary music to different musical sound languages. Characteristic of his orchestral works is the importance of timbres as well as the sensual experience that is at the center of his works. For the premiere, Hungarian director David Marton is developing a cinematic opera in which the boundaries between reality and fiction become blurred. This content has been machine translated.
