TRANSIENT Impulse Festival: THE BEGINNING
Under the artistic direction of Jeremias Schwarzer, three venues in the northern Eifel came together for the first time to form an interdisciplinary festival in May, June and September 2021.
"Drastic and clear" - "strong and accurate": Johannes Klumpp received enthusiastic reviews for his conducting of the two opera premieres From a House of the Dead and The Makropulos Affair on April 30 at the Hessisches Staatstheater Wiesbaden. The Janáček double bill was performed again in May; individually, the operas will be shown until July.
Vito Žuraj's first full-length opera Blühen was premiered in Frankfurt in January 2023 and received enthusiastic reviews. Before the world premiere, we spoke to the composer about his collaboration with librettist Händl Klaus, director Brigitte Fassbaender and the Ensemble Modern, which played under Michael Wendeberg.
