Sylvia

1.3.2019 – 23.3.2019

A ballet of strong women

Sylvia tells the universal story of a young woman on the cusp of adulthood. Sylvia tries to find a balance between power and vulnerability, aggression and spirituality, and the repression and embrace of emotions. The ballet’s story is weaved around music composed by Léo Delibes, who was influenced by the work of Richard Wagner.

Vavahduttava Wozzeck saa ensi-iltansa tasan kuukauden päästä 22.3. Sir David McVicarin ohjausta on kiitetty Chicagossa ja Genevessä ja pian saamme vaikuttavan toteutuksen myös Kansallisoopperaan. ”Wozzeck on raivoisa tuskanhuuto, joka kumpuaa turhautumisesta ihmisen arvon unohtaneeseen yhteiskuntaamme ja jää kaikumaan vielä pitkään esiripun laskeuduttua. Wozzeck ja Marie ovat neuvottomia maailmassa, jossa elämää kehystää köyhyys, välinpitämättömyys ja epäoikeudenmukaisuus. Wozzeck tekee kammottavan, brutaalin ja järjettömän teon: hän murhaa Marien. Mutta hän tekee sen epätoivon vallassa, vailla ymmärrystä. Vielä lähes 100 vuotta kantaesityksensä jälkeen Wozzeck on mitä tuskallisin, rehellisin ja totuudenmukaisin kannanotto ihmiselämän julmuudesta.” - ohjaaja Sir David McVicar oopperabaletti.fi/ohjelmisto-ja-liput/wozzeck/
