About

State Opera Orchestra

The conversations relate to the tramline’s vicinity, the personal histories of their participants, as well as the region’s turbulent past.

In addition to the texts from the book Tramvestie, the remarkable musical work was also inspired by the recordings of the interviewers’ voices, as well as the sound of the moving tram.
