Coming for a two operas` night?! - Hochschule für Musik, Theater und Medien Hannover - Hannover

Once a year the University of Music, Drama and Media Hannover produces an opera play.This time there will be two short operas written by two French composers in the first half of the 20th century.“The breast of Tiresias” by Francis Poulenc is a so-called “opera buffa”. In this play, based on the surrealistic drama by Guilliaume Apollinare, the topic of demographic change, population policy and emancipation of women comes up. When Thérèse changes her role with her husband, there is trouble ahead.The second opera is “L`Enfant et les Sortilèges” by Maurice Ravel, with a libretto written by Sidone-Gabrielle Colet. In this lyrical fantasy, objects turn alive after they have been damaged by a furious boy.Come and join us watching these two amusing operas! For better understanding we offer an introduction, for “in-depth enjoyment”.
