World Premiere of "Helena Citrónová" with Backstage Tour
I was composing "Helena" for seven years. It tells the true story of a Slovak Jew in Auschwitz who had an intense relationship with an SS-man. Now, with the help of the Ministry of Culture, the Goethe Institute and Embassies of Israel, Germany, Austria and Slovakia we are producing this opera in the month of the 75th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz by the Red Army.
This year our orchestra toured eight Central European cities with some excerpts from "Helena." No tour I have done was ever so warmly received, with standing ovations, a broadcast by Slovak Radio that was made available in fifty countries and many thank yous from audience members for whom this history was truly personal.
The premiere is the 16th, but I figured I could do this event on the 17th, the second (and last) night in order to have time to give a backstage tour and more time to chat with members. Meet around 19:15 and I'll take the group "behind the scenes" and to meet some of the opera singers who are from all over the world — the Vienna State Opera, Opera Australia, Houston Opera, Flanders Opera, etc. and show the set. The opera itself starts at 20:00.
