About the Show/Event
Information for Zauberland at Royal Opera House, West End (Opera or Operetta). As the Middle East blazes with conflict, a young woman waits at a European border, hoping to cross over to Zauberland - a magic land of peace and security. But when she falls asleep, she dreams of the burnt-out city she has been forced to leave behind. The Royal Opera's relationship with director Katie Mitchell and writer Martin Crimp (Written on Skin and Lessons in Love and Violence) moves to the Linbury Theatre with a new dramatic piece for soprano, piano and four actors. Crimp and composer Bernard Foccroulle have created 16 new songs that are performed alongside Robert Schumann and Heinrich Heine's Dichterliebe, opening up a dialogue between the 19th century and today. Sung in German with English with English surtitles Linbury Studio
