How far can we step out of this world? Mars is getting closer and closer. Walshe is magnetized by this planet and transfers its energy into an open concert piece that will eventually grow into a great opera.
Concert piece based on a libretto by Mark O’Connell for 2 singers, ensemble, live electronics, video and robots.
Before the concert – FERMATE
Astrophysicist Franz Kerschbaum is a guest at Fermate. He talks with author and journalist Mark O’Connell and composer Jennifer Walshe about her composition.
Commissioned by Muziekgebouw Amsterdam, Klangforum Wien and Irish National Opera.
