ADDITIONAL INFORMATION ON THIS PERFORMANCE
The world premiere of the opera “The Terrible Revenge” at Lviv National Opera is dedicated to the 80th birth anniversary of the modern Ukrainian composer Yevhen Stankovych.
A mystical story about severe punishment for terrible crimes reflects contemporary events; the performance is highly relevant in the context of our collective revenge for the barbaric crimes of rasism.
German director Andreas Weirich and set designer Anna Schoettl present a personal interpretation of Gogol’s novel as an author’s version of the biblical story about Cain and Abel.
Spectacular and intellectual Ukrainian opera has never been that modern.
