The opening performance of the 2021/2022 season will be presented in collaboration of all ensembles of our theatre. The exceptional pieces by the Russian composer Igor Stravinsky belong to the composer's classicist period. Although they were created one after the other, they are the exact opposite in terms of their content and composition. The calm, meditative and light atmosphere of the ballet Apollon Musagète will be conjured up by the ballet ensemble, which will share the stage with a somewhat extended string corpus of our theatre's orchestra. Without the usual intermission between the pieces, the story of the gods in the celebrated stage oratorio Oedipus Rex will take us to a man's environment and thus open questions about his eternal curse and suffering and the fatality of prophetic predictions.
