    A Production of Zuflucht Kultur e. V.
    Co-production with the Ludwigsburg Festival

    This is an opera about war and flight, about the loss of homeland and the longing for peace. A piece written today? No, this is Idomeneo, which Wolfgang Amadé Mozart composed 235 years ago, but its themes are indeed highly topical. That’s because all of the characters presented by Mozart are stranded: the protagonist Idomeneo, who has gotten lost returning from war; his son Idamante, who has to flee the wrath of the gods; Ilia, the abducted daughter of the king; and the murderess Elettra. The director Bernd Schmitt has staged this material with refugees of today, who appear alongside the opera’s solo singers. Through new monologues in which they can sing, act, and narrate their own stories, they are made part of the action. And it will be something different musically as well: Idomeneo’s recitatives will be accompanied on an Arabic instrument, the pear-shaped oud, while a choreographed group of refugees will add a fresh touch to the regular chorus.
