Destruction and revival of the city of Mannheim
The star Sirius endangers the city of Mannheim. A scientist has found a way to prevent cataclysm, however, he fears that mankind may not be ready for the evolutionary process that is about to begin.
Mannheim Requiem is an apocalyptical concert show based on the unfinished plans by composer Edgard Varèse. The musical combination of soloists, choirs, band, string trio, and trombone ensemble creates a utopian sound world full of opposites that has never been heard in this form.
Premiere 21st of July 2018, Nationaltheatre of Mannheim
