Ultraschall Cantio Berlin

Premiered at the 2004 Munich Biennial with staging by Oskaras Koršunovas and performed with his troupe, the new version of the chamber opera Cantio by Lithuanian composer Vykintas Baltakas (1972) will have a new staging by Cornelia Heger and be premiered the 17th of January with performances on the 19th and the 20th in the Konzerthaus Berlin during the Ultraschall Festival of contemporary music in Berlin. Carl Faia was there for the premier and he’s been in Berlin rehearsing the new version and taming the live electronics… some things have changed, others remained the same.  Should be fun to hear/see/experience… Some info on the history and the new version of the work are here and here. The photos are from the rehearsals…
