Lisbeta - Thou Shalt not Suffer a Witch to Live

Bulevardi 27, 00180 Helsinki
Aleksanterin teatteri

Lisbeta – thou shalt not suffer a witch to live is an opera about misogyny and superstition.

Lisbeta – thou shalt not suffer a witch to live is an opera about misogyny and superstition. A magpie’s laugh echoes across Sund as the parish priest and the new district judge rile up the locals to fear the unknown. Soon, seven women will be executed for a new crime: communing with the devil.

Lisbeta – thou shalt not suffer a witch to live is a musical celebration in which 17th century women accused of witchcraft take power over the logic of hate rhetoric. For Åland's 100th anniversary of autonomy, Lisbeta and her sisters are given in woe a voice through a newly written, modern opera.
