The second FIASKO-OPERA-EVENING invites the audience to enter a space between two worlds. As a prelude for Gounod’s and Goethe’s FAUST, K.A.U.&Wdowik stage the voices of two opposed choirs in the twilight of a winter’s night.

K.A.U.&Wdowik will develop the film opera FIASKO at the State Theater Darmstadt during the next two years. As a first step towards the final production in summer 2018, they stage five FIASKO OPERA EVENINGS in connection with the opera repertoire: two scenic concerts (Cosí fan Tutte and Jenufa), a choir installation (Faust) and two short plays (Tosca and Tannhäuser).

FIASKO is funded by the Fonds Doppelpass of the German Federal Cultural Foundation.

A video-documentation can be watched here. (passwort required)
