Opa übt

In «Opa übt», the theatre collective FUX confronts the large opera apparatus consisting of several hundred people with a three-man group. The magnificent opera house gives way to Kaserne Basel’s Reithalle. While searching for alternative opera aesthetics, FUX must practice: On the instruments, on their voices and bodies, on their presence and on the new larger whole.
