Vibrant music theatre as a boundary experience

In their first opera production, Susanne Kennedy and Markus Selg create a futuristic total work of art about space and time. Utilising their unmistakable style of theatre, they smash the boundaries between humans and machines, reality and simulation. Inspired by the unconventional genius Albert Einstein, Philip Glass created a 20th century masterpiece that breaks all the rules of opera and fails to follow a linear narrative structure. Repetitive patterns make it possible to experience time as a sensual phenomenon and put the audience in a trance. This is the first time that the two special ensembles of Basler Madrigalisten and Ensemble Phoenix can be experienced together in an opera production at Theater Basel.

Gemeinsam mit der Dramaturgie kuratiert das Basler Kulturhaus Bider&Tanner seit vielen Jahren den Büchertisch zu unseren Stücken. Jetzt ist diese Auswahl an Büchern, CD, DVD, Katalogen oder auch Noten jederzeit im Onlineshop zugänglich. Es lohnt sich, regelmässig zu stöbern.
