A musical Kafka process. In autumn 2013, Christian Eggen’s opera Kafka Pictures will be performed in its entirety. The work is based on a fragment of text by Franz Kafka and this spring two new elements of the opera will be presented, Eine Bitte having been performed during the 2009/2010 season.

In Homecoming, a man returns to his childhood home after many years away. As he knocks on the door, he is haunted by thoughts. Why does he hesitate?

After Death is about a family assembled before a coffin to pay their last respects to the deceased. Christian Eggen calls the work musical theatre rather than opera, and Kafka’s text fragments serve as a source of inspiration for the music and scenic images.

Between acts, René Clair's silent film Entr’acte from1924 will be shown, accompanied by Erik Satie’s original music for the film performed by Oslo Sinfonietta.

Kafka writes: “My grandfather was a very pious and learned man, with a long white beard. My mother was six when he died. She remembers that she had to hold back the tears as he lay on the bier, while she asked forgiveness for all the evil she must have done to him.”

Music: Christian Eggen

Dramaturgy: Halldis Hoaas

Scenography and costumes: Ingeborg Kvamme

Musical direction: Christian Eggen

BWW Review: Kristin Chenoweth Returns to the Stage in Boone After a Six-Week Hiatus and Lights Up the Schaefer Center for the Performing Arts
by Lauren Van Hemert - Aug 7, 2018

Kristin Chenoweth kicked off the next leg of her tour in Boone after a six-week hiatus last weekend. She lit up The Schaeffer Center as part of the Appalachian Summer Festival. The concert was a Homecoming of sorts for Chenoweth's ever-talented musical director Mary-Mitchell Campbell who is from Wilson and graduated from the North Carolina School of the Arts. Chenoweth opened her concert with a selection of songs from The American Songbook, showcasing her soaring soprano voice and effervescent personality. She even channelled her character from the NBC series 'Trial and Error,' singing 'Bird in a Gilded Cage' first as Lavinia and then as herself, in true Chenoweth style. She recorded this part of the concert on her assistant's cell phone, which she posted on YouTube. For the next set, Chenoweth transitioned to singing Broadway show tunes including a most poignant and moving rendition of 'Bring Him Home' from LES MISERABLES, as well fan favorite, 'Popular' from WICKED. To end the show, she sang an eclectic mix of Don Henley, Dolly Parton, and Christian music singer Sandi Patty's 'Upon This Rock,' for which she was joined by a group of local students. The students also joined her in singing Campbell's inspirational ballad, 'Reasons for Hope.' (more...)
