Wider das Verlöschen

Concept and stage direction:
Haitham Assem Tantawy
Set and costumes: Matthias Kronfuss
Dramaturgy: Filippo Romanello

An opera evening in two episodes based on Wagner’s key works, re-interpreting scenes from the Ring, Tristan and Isolde and Parsifal as an encounter of a man with the goddess Persephone in a purgatorial world. I created a versatile space with chain curtains and an abstract landscape which gets deconstructed in the course of the evening.
