DIE SOLDATEN

April 2018

 

Last April, the only opera by Bernd Alois Zimmermann and one of the key works of the 20th century, Die Soldaten, was premiered at the Oper Köln in Colón in Cologne. Due to its extreme complexity, it represents a challenge for its performance on stage

Directed by Carlus Padrissa (La Fura dels Baus), he intends to make an opera such as Zimmerman would have imagined in 1957: in a totally immersive way, in 360º.

From BAF General de Catalunya we have been in charge of the technical design of the projections on an out of the ordinary scenario, since in this case the stage surrounded the audience who, with rotating chairs had to move so as not to miss any detail of the opera.
