From 7 to 9 November, the Oper Stuttgart honours Wolfgang Rihm with a composer weekend during which a selection of the composer’s works will be performed – among them Gesungene Zeit, his Fetzen and the Wölfli-Lieder –andfilm screenings will take place.
After the very successful première of Jakob Lenz on 25 October (a collection of [German] reviews can be found on the blog of the Oper Stuttgart), Georg Nigl returns to the stage as Lenz on 8 November.
