The performance of two operas by Josef Berg (1927-1971), exclusively prepared for the Opera Nova 2018 festival, by the Brno Contemporary Orchestra. The demythisation of myth, the celebration of failure, a profound message in a “shallow” farce. That all is synonymous with Josef Berg, a Renaissance figure of the post-war avant-garde. A true master of mystification, a pioneer of performance art, an original composer, writer and dramatist rolled into one. The operas treat a great theme within a small space.
