BRUEHL. Some a film sequence hunts cold showers over the back, some a picture burns itself deeply and indelibly into the memory: the chamber opera based on a Collage novel of max Ernst "the night will come..." (A little girl dreams OF taking the veil) from Erling Wold exposes the spectators to a fascinating abundance of sensory impressions, which are to be seized in their whole however only with difficulty.
Erling Wold found coincidentally in a small book shop the Collage novels translated by max of seriousness wife Dorothea Tanning. From the history of the small girl, whom at the night, before it occurs a Karmeliterkloster, a dream has, it was particularly bound. The book leads into the abysses of the religious Exstase and the erotischen desires.
1993 developed finally the opera, for whose production the director Thomas Woschitz of max Ernst Collagetechnik let itself be energized. The Klagenfurter ensemble offered an impressive performance, which refers its intensity from it on the occasion of the max seriousness weekend in two evenings in the Franziskanerhof in the open air that stage, singers, music and video projection in most refined way into an inseparable unit merge.
Thomas Woschitz supported the work of the American experimental composer arranged into four chapters with film chips from old horror films and attitudes, which were turned particularly for the opera. Incessant the projections over fold and divisible walls the stage flutter, where they are multiplied and broken.
Thus develops in connection with Erling Wolds of exciting music a dark, surrealer Albtraum around Exstase and Obsession, emotion and aggression.
When singers and actors step the Sopranistin Mariko Wakita, which functions tenor Josef Oberauer and the eleven-year old Yasmine Reissner up, which proves an impressing operational readiness level in the midst of the tide of provoking and disturbing pictures, Gerhard Lehner as a storyteller.
The four are kongeniale interpreters, who add themselves excellently into the unusual concept; the two singers impress beyond that with founded voices and concise expression.
Conductor Alexej Kornienko kept the siebenkoepfige ensemble Collegium Musicum Carinthia safe course, so that the synchronisation of music and video projection succeeded perfectly.
