The production includes the new realisation of the third act by Eberhard Kloke.
Opening night is 16 February.
Video excerpts from the Copenhagen production:
The German première of the new third act will be given in Erfurt this June.
The performance is given by the Kairos Quartett, long time champions of Haas’ string quartets and veterans of this unique work – performed as it is in absolute darkness.
Das Gehege is presented in an evening-length programme called Trilogie der Frauen* [Trilogy of Women], which includes Schönberg’s Erwartung and Oscar Strasnoy’s Le Bal.
* not to be confused with Rihm’s own trilogy Drei Frauen, which consists of Aria/Ariadne, Das Gehege and the Penthesliea Monolog.
My colleagues have just made this poster to be displayed at the Mayrische Musikalienhandlung in Salzburg this spring, where Friedrich Cerha will be awarded the Music Prize of the State of Salzburg.
