"Self-made woman" at the State Opera
The State Opera presents after 102 years one of the most successful opera titles of the first half of the 20th century as part of the Musica non grata project - Franz Schreker's Der ferne Klang (The Distant Sound), directed by two-time Golden Mask Award winner Timofej Kuljabin, who makes his Czech debut. The premieres will take place on March 20 and 26, with further performances scheduled for March 29 and April 3 and 10.
„For me Der ferne Klang is the story of today's world, set in a unknown, vibrant, modern European city. As in Schreker's libretto, in our view we are witnessing the relationship of two people, and we are watching them through their three reunions and separations, between which several years pass. However, for me, this story is not a story about romantic love and deceptive illusions, but a reflection on the essence and rights of real talent. Even more so if such talent belongs to a woman," says Timofey Kuljabin. In the main parts Svetlana Aksenova, Ales Briscein, Daniel Scofield and Daria Rositskaya.
