Just try to forget everything you think you know about opera and free yourself from clichés such as “Until the Fat Lady Sings”. Open up and unravel the hidden spaces between music, image and text. Join us in and discover how the combination of electronic music, the human voice and theatrical imagination can elevate us to new consciousness.
Supported by the Opera Forward Festival, a group of 15 master students from the Re:master Opera department at the Sandberg Institute will create a new short operatic performance in which they examine what opera means for them and what it could mean for you. The departure-point for this new creation is the music of COUSIN (aka Daan Couzijn) – a Paris based electronic artist whose music is influenced by many different genres and artists like Björk, James Blake and Sevdaliza. His electronic sounds dip into minimalistic trip-hop styles balanced out by catchy pop melodies, experimental key changes and a playful use of soft vocals.
