A production with teenagers and young adults
As a matter of course, Zurich Opera House’s stage projects with teenagers and young adults have become a permanent fixture on the programme. For the sixth time, experienced artists will develop and stage a production with young amateurs. Inspired by the contemporary musical drama Das Mädchen mit den Schwefelhölzern, three different groups of teenagers and young adults will tackle questions of humanity in a cold, selfish meritocracy. The project is about the quest for warmth and empathy, experiences with callousness and isolation, and the yearning for compelling ideas in a world full of contradictions. The artistic journeys of the three groups will be combined in an evening performance and presented on the Studio Stage at the end of the season.
Performances: 7, 8 July 2O2O, Studio Stage
