Lege Wieg | Opera of Seung-Ah Oh

Muziektheater Hollands Diep in coöperation with VocaalLAB.

Fate makes a young woman a nomad, a child puts her life on a firm footing, in a storm she loses him...
A well-known old story from the Taurus Mountains in Turkey, adapted by writer Anne Vegter (Rotterdam) and singer Nurhan Uyar (Istanbul/Berlin) to create surprising contemporary music theatre. The new composition and musical instruments are a melting pot of Turkish folk songs and contemporary Western music. The piece is performed by soloists and a vocal ensemble. The performers come from different musical and cultural traditions and are a mixture of amateur and professional singers.

Trailer made by Boris Bischoff
