Staged by Romeo Castellucci, one of the foremost theatre artists in Europe, and with the Hamburg-based music director Kent Nagano, this unusual performance by the Hamburg State Opera in collaboration with the Deichtorhallen Hamburg will celebrate its premiere on 21 April 2016, and thus officially open the International Music Fest Hamburg
The Interaction of Arts
In his intensely visual and sonic performances between theatre, installations, and performance, the internationally renowned artist Romeo Castellucci has increasingly explored interactions between image and viewer, between depiction and the impossibility of representation, and between the power of images to convey meaning and identity in our Western culture in recent year. In 2013, Castellucci was awarded the Golden Lion at the Venice Biennale for his life’s work.
The unusual Bach project “La Passione” (Saint Matthew Passion) also features a first-class lineup of soloists: Ian Bostridge as Saint John the Evangelist, sopranos Hayoung Lee and Christina Gansch, alto Dorottya Láng, tenor Bernard Richter, and bass Philippe Sly as Jesus. The Audi Youth Choir Academy will be
conducted by Martin Steidler. The premiere of La Passione will also mark the opening of the second Hamburg International Music Festival.
