"The kingdom of music-EARTH." That's what Ingeborg Bachmann wrote on a telegram to Hans Werner Henze many years ago. Now in 2018 the composer Saskia Bladt and the artist and set designer Anna Sofie Lugmeier pick up on this note from Ingeborg Bachmann, transform it into the title of their Biennale project, and write the following lines for the audience of the festival:
"A new opera develops as a type of vehicle that has become rare or even almost forgotten, and with the help of this vehicle an encroachment into a Regno della musica appears to be possible again. Together with you and the vocalists from Neue Vocalsolisten from Stuttgart, we would like to invent this new opera during the entire period of the festival-and, namely, extremely privately. People, subjects, sounds, and tones will encounter one another during a mutual dinner, a breakfast, a party to celebrate the halfway mark, a concert, in silence or during the course of a child's birthday. The essence of new music theater approaches here from a collective participation, from the encounters in the daily development and ebbing of private dialogues. In order to take form in the end. But before it has come that far we look forward to invite you to this festive passage.
Where? We will let you know this personally. You are cordially welcome!"
