When will the opera Ovartaci have its premiere?

The Berliner Atonale has 12 composers as its members; and each of them was assigned one scene of the new opera Ovartaci – crazy, queer & lovable. You compose your scene all by yourself – without any knowledge of how the other scenes are going to turn out. The only guideline you have is the libretto, but there is no overarching motif, melody, or harmony. Each of the 12 composers has to imagine on their own who Ovartaci was. AND IT WORKS! The idea of the libretto writer Tanja Langer unfolded beautifully. The opera is literally as crazy, queer, and lovable as the title suggests. Now it will be performed for the first time in concert form – a complete premiere with a stage production will follow soon!
