Frankenstein

Introduction at 6.20 pm | „OpernForum“ after the show

Created from nothing. Ugly and in need of love. Unique. Strange. Rejected. Lonely. Hurt. Angry. Murdering, so that somebody should feel its pain. – In 1818, during her holiday on Lake Geneva, a 19-year-old writer invented a monstrous creature and its creator; Frankenstein, a young scientist thirsting for knowledge creates a humanoid being which drives him and itself into death. Mary Shelley’s novel is a political statement, a vision of the future, a horror story and road movie, all in one. Commemorating the 200th anniversary of this horror classic, the Berlin-based film and opera director Philipp Stölzl (“Der Medicus”, “Winnetou”) and the Hamburg-based composer Jan Dvorak tell the story as a “Gothic opera”, oscillating between sounds of nature, horror effects and a noir version of neo-romanticism.
