UMELECKÉ ŤAŽENIE REŽISÉRA PETRA KONWITSCHNÉHO PROTI „MŔTVEJ OPERE“
Director Peter Konwitschny's art march against "dead opera"
Languages of publication
The text deals with selected principles of the work of the German opera director Peter Konwitschny (1945). The lifelong ambition of an artist who openly proclaims a left-wing orientation is to distract the audience from consuming indulgence in beautiful music and make them a socially responsible, thoughtful participant in his productions. He has created, during his half-century career, a stable database of isotopes through which he fulfils his ideas, from curtain up in the auditorium to solutions resembling immersive theatre strategies. The author presents examples from several productions that Peter Konwitschny has directed on European stages, including the Slovak National Theatre in Bratislava.
