Oper

The new Semper Zwei season opens with »4.48 Psychosis«

The German premiere of the chamber opera »4.48 Psychosis« in Semper Zwei in April of this year was celebrated by audience and critics alike. Now the work returns from 7 September to Semper Zwei for a total of five performances. The opera is based on Sarah Kane’s play of the same name. Premiered posthumously after the author’s suicide, »4.48 Psychosis« takes us deep into the depression and psychotic states of the protagonist’s tortured soul. Composer Philip Venables created a German version of his opera for the Semperoper based on a translation by the Dresden poet and essayist Durs Grünbein.
