A Camouflage Opera

November 29, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

A Camouflage Opera / György Kurtág: Attila József – Fragments

The German notion of Gesamtkunstwerk — a synthesis of disparate art forms brought together in harmonious collusion to express a unified vision — is central to this new groundbreaking musical-theater work that will be premiered at the Commissariat Store Museum.

Based on Kurtág’s only work for unaccompanied voice generates multiple trajectories and continuities across a diverse field of fragmentary utterances and literary and musical associations. Staged by Stephen Danzig and described as the ‘3D opera’ because of its unprecedented fusion of a live opera singer with film performances, soundscapes and multi-layered live video mapping. This performance creates a 3D theatre experience to unfold the sequence of the twenty fragments.

Judit Molnar – soprano / Kimberley Bianca – visuals / Stephen Danzig – director

The performance (appr. 45min long) will be followed by a panel discussion including academics and industry leaders to discuss new interpretations of opera for contemporary audiences.

Chair: Stephen Danzig

Patrick Nolan, Artistic Director & CEO Opera Queensland
