23.11.2022 – Premiere of “Obsessions” on 03 December in Wuppertal
A parforceride through space and time: The Finnish collective Oblivia throws light on human desires and passions with the music theatre project “Obsessions“. After the third NOperas! production was shown at the Bremen Theatre in February this year, it will now celebrate its premiere at the Wuppertal Opera House on 3 December.
Three singers, four performers and nine musicians playfully examine obsessions as the driving forces of human behaviour. With fine wit and a light hand, they lead the audience through complex worlds of thought. The will to power, the will to freedom: great ambitions are broken down to minimalist stage poetry. The original sound of the multi-award-winning composer Yiran Zhao closely interweaves the stage action with electro and acoustic sounds and examines language for its musical potential.
