Only the sound remains

Only the sound remains

In 2016 the Dutch National Opera presents the new opera production Only the sound remains. Only the sound remains is directed by the renowned American director Peter Sellars (1957) and consists of two parts, which are based on Japanese Noh dramas. The central theme of these pieces is the encounter between the living and the dead, between humans and spirits, the earthly and the heavenly. The music is composed by the Finnish composer Kaija Saariaho. Ammodo supports Only the sound remains to contribute to the development of contemporary opera.
