World-renowned for his work in the world of experimental music, Dieter Schnebel will be presenting his latest musical theatre project, ‘Utopien’ (‘Utopias’), towards the end of this week and over the weekend in the Werner-Otto-Saal in the Konzerthaus on Gendarmenmarkt.
Music theorist, composer, and theologist Dieter Schnebel (born 1930) is a veteran of the experimental music scene, and held a position as professor of experimental music at Berlin’s Hochschule der Künste from 1976 until his retirement in 1995. Since then he has been teaching occasional composition classes in Berlin.
His new work, ‘Utopien,’ is a form of theatre that incorporates sound, space, and movement and revolves around the trinity of Christian virtue: faith, hope, and love. The work was written for and will be performed by the Neue Vocalsolisten Stuttgart, and is, like much of Schnebel’s work, not conventional: the singers are not restricted to the stage, and will perform from amongst the audience as well.
We are giving away one pair of free tickets to the performance taking place on May 29th at 20:00; contact us per email or leave a comment below for a chance to win!
