Royal Opera House
A day that begins like any other for Johannes, a hardworking fisherman, turns into a momentous experience as he slowly discovers the world has changed. His daughter seems not to notice him, yet he meets his wife and his best friend, both long dead.
This world premiere from The Royal Opera reflects on the journey from life into death as themes of sadness and hope combine with intense and sensual musical expression. Leading Austrian composer Georg Friedrich Haas captures in sound the extraordinary poetic and reflective quality of Jon Fosse’s novel, with libretto that uses both English and German. The cast includes celebrated Austrian actor Klaus Maria Brandaeur in a production by Graham Vick that allows the individuality and beauty of the meditative atmosphere of this new opera to resonate.
