Morgen und Abend
THE ROYAL OPERA, MAIN STAGE
Graham Vick directs the world premiere of Georg Friedrich Haas’s new opera, starring great Austrian actor Klaus Maria Brandauer. Austrian composer Georg Friedrich Haas is fast becoming one of the leading composers of his generation. Morgen und Abend (Morning and Evening) marks his first commission from The Royal Opera. Award-winning Norwegian author, poet and playwright Jon Fosse provides the libretto – an adaptation of his acclaimed 2000 novel of the same name, which describes with meditative, near incantatory simplicity the life of a fisherman from birth to death. This world premiere is directed by Graham Vick, Artistic Director of Birmingham Opera Company and former Director of Productions with Scottish Opera and Glyndebourne Festival Opera.
