Work introduction

The long, eight-part poem by Charles Baudelaire (from Fleurs du Mal, 1859) was used by Staud as the basis for a cross between monodrama, play and concert work in which a perpetually iridescent whole is formed between four poles of tension: actor, vocal ensemble, instrument group and electronics.
