Eva Noer Kondrup: The Traveller

In September 2015 a large number of refugees crossed the Danish border and walked North on the freeway towards Sweden. This event resulted in a heated media debate and political actions, which - among other things - the control at the Danish border.

In The Traveller, composer and librettist Eva Noer Kondrup has focused on refugees. The opera was created from memories recorded by refugee children from the former Yugoslavia, a pivotal quote from political current affairs on refugees, and a classic frame story as seen in the Odin Teatret's production of Bertolt Brecht's Mutter Courage and Her Children.

The music of the piece finds inspiration in folk music traditions of the Middle East and the Balkans as well as in Klezmer music with accordion, double bass and percussion, combining an easily recognizable sound with surprising elements and classic composition techniques.

The award winning lighting designer Jesper Kongshaug will create the set design, and Ida Fogh Kiberg will be making her debut as stage director.

Rossini: The Barber of Seville

The Golden Age of the silent movie in the 1910s and 1920s is the main source of inspiration for prizewinning theatre director Martin Lyngbo's debut as opera director.

True to the feel of the silent movies, this production promises speed and chaos as the young count tries to capture the heart of his beloved Rosina and spirit her away from her over-ambitious guardian, Don Bartolo.

In Martin Lyngbo's interpretation, Il barbiere di Siviglia becomes a tale of empathy and humanity in an age of tyranny, where everyone has their own agenda. There will be chaos and love, vengeance and celebration, pride and shame, feast and failure accompanied by laughter, smiles, anger and irritation.
