World premiere in Bern: from September 17th, Bas Wiegers conducts Georg Friedrich Haas' new opera Sycorax.

In Georg Friedrich Haas' new opera, a character from the drama The Tempest, who is only mentioned in passing in Shakespeare, is given a voice: Mollena Williams-Haas embodies Sycorax, whose son Caliban is exploited by Prospero. This change of perspective in the narrative of a well-known play was staged for Bühnen Bern by the young director Giulia Giammona.
