THE TIME OF OUR SINGING Comes to Theater St.Gallen

Based on Richard Powers' novel of the same name, The Time of Our Singing interlockspersonal experiences with historical events whose themes show clear parallels with the recent history of the USA: Black Lives Matter, police brutality and rigged elections accompany the brothers Jonah and Joey Strom on their path through life. Against the background of racial segregation in post-war America, the opera tells of the life of a family with a black mother and a white father.

The parents bring up their children with a lot of love for music, which later harbors a reason for division for the children in their search for their own identity, but also for solidarity. The Belgian composer Kris Defoort incorporates quotations from the jazz and classical repertoire into his composition and expands the orchestra with a jazz ensemble. The theater of St.

IBERIA Comes to Theatre St.Gallen This Week

A “fantastic” program in the truest sense of the word marks the end of our Tonhalle concerts this season. In 1897 Richard Strauss created a musical monument to the tragi-comic story about Don Quixote and his peasant squire Sancho Panza. The solo cello is allowed to mime the “knight of the sad figure” with virtuosity, for which Johannes Moser returns to the St.Gallen Symphony Orchestra.

BLESSED ARE THE BLOCKHEADS! is Now Playing at Theater St.Gallen

There were numerous stories about Paula Roth, the landlady of the “Bellaluna” in the Albula Valley, and when she was murdered in 1988, the “witch of the Albula Valley” finally became a legend. Films are made, their 'art' goes into the museum, a biography is written - it is made into an original and the 'Bellaluna' even becomes a place of worship. 

MESSA DA REQUIEM Comes to Theater St.Gallen

Giuseppe Verdi draws in his Messa da Requiem in an overwhelming and touching wayman's struggle with his destiny. As in his operas, his only funeral mass focuses on emotions; the music conjures up feelings of fear, anger, sadness and the desire for redemption and liberation, but also the hope for a new beginning.
