Introduction to Sternenhoch

Introductions | Acher

The universal language of music meets the international language of Esperanto in Ivan Acher's debut opera, Sternenhoch. In this introductory film, director Michal Dočekal, conductor Petr Kofroň, soprano Vanda Šípová and the composer explain how they transformed Ladislav Klíma’s expressionist novel The Sufferings of Prince Sternenhoch into a magical and original new opera.

The full performance is no longer available but other material about the production can be found here.
