Apr 16 at 7:30 pm - HILMA by Benjamin Staern and Mira Bartov with Fredrik and Mette af Klint

from 43.00

On the occasion of the exhibition Hilma af Klint: Paintings for the Future, see the world premiere of an opera about Swedish artist Hilma af Klint, inspired by her unique body of spiritual works. Mette af Klint plays the enigmatic Hilma, while Fredrik af Klint (a relative of the artist) portrays Rudolf Steiner. Composer Benjamin Staern connects tones and timbres with the colors and shapes of af Klint’s abstract works. The chamber opera, directed by librettist Mira Bartov with costumes by Ulrika Lilliehöök, highlights pivotal moments from af Klint’s life, and features motion generated projections of her work and accompaniment by pianist Stefan Lindgren, violinist Victoria Stjerna, and cellist Andreas Lavothe.

Produced by Mette af Klint in collaboration with Swedish Arts Council, Swedish Performing Arts Agency, and the Swedish Arts Grants Committee.
