WEISSE ROSE Comes To Greek National Opera Through 11/18
The contemporary repertoire opera WEISSE ROSE comes to the Greek National Opera, running until Nov. 18.
The action is no longer linear, and the characters are limited to the two Scholl siblings. Centred around the wait before their execution, Zimmermann creates a musical theatre work, where historical re-enactment gives its place to a heart-wrenching, deeply personal exploration of morality, death and political responsibility.
The play's core is an "architectural" dramaturgy, during which, the stage becomes the construction site of a detention cell, and at the same time, the place where the prison is demolished through the near-death, poetic reverie of the two characters. In the end, a new, hidden landscape of emotion, freedom and disobedience is revealed.
