Dialogue over centuries
In addition to her new opera Infinite Now, Chaya Czernowin receives another world premiere on 16 June, with the first performance of a new version of Adama with new choral parts. The opera, connected to Mozart’s ‘singspiel’ Zaïde, will be brought to the stage at Theater Freiburg in a production by Ludger Engel.
Composed in 1780, Mozart’s fragment containing 15 musical scenes is a preliminary study for Entführung aus dem Serail. As a commission of the Salzburg Festival in 2006, Chaya Czernowin’s work stood as both a companion piece and counterpart to Zaïde. Adama shows the desperation of the voiceless in a world consumed by nationalist fervour.
