Four works come together to create a poignant world premiere, an opera of silence and untamed forces.

Four works come together to create a poignant world premiere, an opera of silence and untamed forces.

Kaija Saariaho’s first composition for the stage, Study for Life, was performed only once in February 1981. Now a new generation of artists is giving her cryptic first step towards opera a fresh interpretation by combining it with the stage version of the violin concerto Graal Théâtre.

Composers Sebastian Hilli and Matias Vestergård with their poetic sound visions also represent the new generation. Four works come together to create a poignant world premiere, an opera of silence and untamed forces.
