      BJÖRK (*1965)


      Opera based on the album Vespertine (2001)
      Musical stage adaptation, arrangement and additional music from “Himmelfahrt Scores”.
      Premiere on May 26th, 2018.
      A coproduction between Nationaltheater Mannheim and Hotel Pro Forma

      An album as an opera. Pop music is theatrical, it lives on stories, constantly creating new characters of art. In addition, no other style has changed and influenced music reception so enduringly as pop music. Most people can draw biographical references on the map of pop music. So, it seems high time to open the doors of the opera to a new visitor. With its symphonic elements, dramatic singing lines and ethereal choir vocals, Vespertine seems to be the perfect model for the complex project.
      OehmsClassics begins the new partnership with the Nationaltheater Mannheim (NTM Edition) with a bang. Rarely has a premiere in Germany experienced such a press echo as this, in May 2018.
