Opera (for a stage dedication) in three acts | Text by Albert Steffen | In German with supertitles
What leeway does the individual have in the fight against a dictatorial regime? Set against the backdrop of the Nazis’ seizure of power, Viktor Ullmann and his librettist Albert Steffen search for the answers to this question. This consecration for the stage is, in a way, Viktor Ullmann’s response to Richard Wagner’s »Parsifal«.
