Stage / Orchestral

We are very happy to announce a new opera by Karsten Fundal and EFTERKLANG, directed by Christian Lollike:

LEAVES - The Colour of Falling (2015) is a genre-crossing operatic production taking place underground in a giant Cold War-era bunker beneath Copenhagen’s municipal hospital. Once used as a subterranean emergency hospital but long since abandoned, the audience is being led through the labyrinthine corridors that have been closed to the public for decades. A commission by Copenhagen Opera Festival. (www.sort-hvid.dk/en/project/leaves)
