The opera is based on a play by Franz Kranewitter, called Totentanz. The author wrote the play at the end of the 1st world war in Innsbruck/Austria. It is about two evil gravediggers who are about to meet the death!…
I started writing in March 2016 and finished during the rehearsal process this january. The opera combines playbacks I produced in the studio (Synths, Bass, Drums) with a small live orchestra (violoncello, viola, trumpet, trombone, piano). To keep the orchestra in time with the playbacks a click track is given to the conductor.
It was a huge pleasure and amazing experience to work with such a professional team and I am looking forward to write my next chamber opera!
