As violence blazes, a young woman waits at the border of Zauberland—a magical world of security and peace. But while asleep, her dreams are haunted by images of the burnt-out city she was forced to abandon. Composer Bernard Foccroulle and writer Martin Crimp seamlessly interweave 19 new songs with Schumann’s Dichterliebe, a Romantic song cycle infused with yearning and fairy-tale landscapes. Katie Mitchell directs this New York premiere starring “ravishingly visceral” soprano Julia Bullock and pianist Cédric Tiberghien (New York Times).
“The most important British director of theatre and opera at work today.”– Guardian (U.K.) on director Katie Mitchell
“Bullock’s radiant soprano shines brightly and unfailingly. . . . she communicates intense, authentic feeling, as if she were singing right from her soul.”– Opera News
