Karlheinz Stockhausen - INVASION-EXPLOSION mit ABSCHIED

You are barely 15 years old and bombs are falling all around you every day. Every night the sky is lit up by the bombing of Germany’s industrial heart in the dying days of the Second World War. Barely 16 years of age you are forced to recover casualties, including the pilots who bombed your birthplace to liberate you from the regime your parents had chosen to support. What is good? And what is evil? Karlheinz Stockhausen relives his own experiences in the scene INVASION-EXPLOSION mit ABSCHIED, part of his opera cycle, Aus LICHT. A dilemma that he leaves his musicians to fight out in a hellish spectacle.

This is a co-production of the National Opera and the Royal Conservatoire in the Opera Forward Festival.
Talk to the team and guests after the performance!
