Opera Forward Festival presents the world premiere of the musical-theatrical collage performance Ändere die Welt!. It shows a group of people in the aftermath of a revolution. They try to build a new existence while asking themselves: how do you change the world?

With musical director, arranger and pianist Pedro Beriso, existing and new material was used to build an idiosyncratic sound world. Music by Hanns Eisler, Weill, Rachmaninov, Shostakovich, Schumann, Auber, Beethoven and Wagner, among others, is combined with the contemporary sounds of spoken word and electronic soundscapes. The young, promising theatre-maker Mart van Berckel brings it all together on stage.

With singers from the Opera Studio.
