Julie

  • Taken from the eponymous drama by Strindberg, Julie by Philippe Boesmans is a compact opera,both in terms of its vocalists and instrumental accompaniment, and lasts 70 minutes. Directed by Manfred Schweigkofler, who places an emphasis on the modern and theatrical aspectsof the text, all of the action takes place within Cristina Alaimo's striking scenery: a long,straight catwalk, deep within a mysterious birch wood, where the entire drama unfolds. The instrument players take an active part in the action, giving the opera a hereto unseen dramaticimpact. The production has obtained enthusiastic comments from both national and foreign critics andmay be part of the Oper@4U program – a well-structured and wide ranging project to help bothstudents and high school teachers become more familiar with contemporary opera.

    "Schweigkofler was also responsible for directing the show, striving to give it a fully theatrical slant, avoiding operatic conventions and gestures, moving the players in an extremely natural way, without emphasis (...) a proudly 'old-fashioned' direction, at the same time realistic and very traditional, full of strong emotions"

    Musica, Gianluigi Mattietti, March 2009

    "Das Bild, das er für diese schwankenden Verhältnisse gefunden hat, ist ein skandinavischer Birkenwald wie aus einem Gemälde von Munch. Je weiter die Geschichte sich entwickelt, desto mehr rutscht alles in die Schräge. Die Bäume, der Küchenboden, der Tisch. Nur die Stiefel des abwesenden Grafen bleiben wie eine Godot-Reminiszenz an ihrem Platz."

    Tageszeitung, Heinrich Schwazer, 7.1.2009
