A universe where sound and visuals, opera and electronica melts together. Get inside.
Neue Träume is a devised opera, meaning that the borders between different genres are dissolved in sound and visuals. It is a musical retelling about love, which plays with and breaks the classical way of performing opera and lieds. In this opera-collage Rasmus Krone's new lyrics are mixed with well-known arias and lieds, and it all melts together into a new universe of electronic sound.
The piece is directed by Julie Kunz and written for three singers from the Royal Danish Academy of Music. They are accompanied by a musician working the synthesizer, the electric guitar and the electric bass. The entire cast is on stage during the production, and since they perform without props and costumes, they each form each others set.
