Angela Bürger (*1965) | Alfred Zimmerlin (*1955)
“Herz Maere.” Myth in seven tableaux. Théâtre Musical based on fragments by Gottfried von
Strassburg and Konrad von Würzburg | world premiere
In the twelfth century, a tragic story circulated throughout Europe, from the Balkans to Portugal: the story of the triangle between a woman, her husband, and his rival, a knight whom the woman loves. Feelings that burn with urgency, yearning, longing, disappointment and the thirst for revenge, the agony of separation and jealousy: The hopelessness of the situation only intensifies the desire to experience the moment in all its power, giving the couple’s erotic relationship its depth and volatility. Director Angela Bürger and composer Alfred Zimmerlin have designed an updated version of the Tristan myth using excerpts from the medieval texts of Gottfried von Strassburg and Konrad von Würzburg. With only three musicians onstage, they will recount the old tale in a new way, recreating it as an enthralling chamber play.
