OPERN SPACE

OPERN SPACE is a Vienna-based Opera Company which produces site-specific operas. We aim to present operas in unusual, non-theatrical venues to attract new audience and to create a unique experience with very close contact between the singers and the audience.


Productions

"Mozart & Salieri" (Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov), Performances in June 2010 in the SKYBAR in Vienna.

The Viennese Company OPERN SPACE presented "Mozart & Salieri" as  'Pop-up Opera', performed in one of the most prestigious bars in Vienna, the SKY BAR at Kärntnerstraße right in the heart of Vienna. We transfer the story of Rimsky-Korsakov's opera - a meeting between Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and his rival Antonio Salieri - into our time, their meeting now takes place at SKY BAR and our singers will use the whole bar as their stage, making the audience part of the performance.

The show has been performed in June 2010 in front of an enthusiastic audience and received praising reviews: "A great start that makes you want to see more!" (Der Neue Merker).

In 2013, we want to revive this production in 2013 as collaboration between artists from Austria and from the UK with performances in both cities London and Vienna and we are delighted to announce that the British conductor Andrew Charity has agreed to join our team as musical director.

"The Diary of Anne Frank" (Grigori Frid), Performances in April 2011 in the Old Train Station/Museum Strasshof in Austria.

We performed this opera, which tells about the tragic last weeks of young Anne Frank before she got deported to a concentration-camp and killed in 1945, in the old train station Strasshof. Many Jews got deported from there and we want to keep their memory alive by showing the story of Anne Frank in this very special space. We used original train wagons of 1945 as our stage.

This production was highly recommended by the Austrian Press and was reviewed by the Prime Time news in Austrians main Television Station ORF (more information & reviews upon request!).

Stage director: Nina Dudek // Musical director: Richard Ilya Tauber // Set and Costume designer: Sandrina Schwarz
