As the second production of the NOperas! support initiative, “Kitesh” will celebrate its premiere at the Halle Opera House in October.
Along Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov’s opera “The Legend of the Invisible City of Kitezh and the Virgin Fevroniya” and with new compositions by Alexander Chernyshkov, the music theater collective “Hauen und Stechen” delves into the old, almost mythological spirituality in the Volga region and explores what mystery and faith, as relics of a lost past, can still do. The immersive music theater project involves the audience directly.
The premiere is on October 18th, further performances will follow on October 24th and 30th, before the production will be staged in Wuppertal (January 2021) and Bremen (July 2021), each in a further developed version.
