About the Event
Dive into the world of extremes! An opera about friction, pain, emotions and how to be heard in a world where nobody listens.
We live in a world that is focused on being happy, but there are also people who go through dark periods in their lives and find little guidance and help in solving their problems. Not everything is what it seems at first sight. If we open ourselves more to the other and offer a listening ear, would we find more happiness and harmony?
IDIOSYNCRATIC: take a deep dive down takes a dive into the psyche of three people. The opera shows the struggle between the cold and cold society and the emotional characters who want to express their heart. Both the music, the libretto and the staging show the friction between the two worlds. What happens when someone stands up and stands up for her opinion? Will there be a change? Is the moment that people are listening?
