SHANGHAI

Opera and music theatre on new terms.

Trailer
”Truly intense and haunting”Nya Lidköpings-Tidningen
”Don't miss this powerful performance”Nya Lidköpings-Tidningen

What happens if we explore different voices and their expressive possibilities in a new work? We aim to find out in a new commission, with Stephen Langridge directing. 

The cast comprises artists from The Göteborg Opera and an ensemble from ShareMusic & Performing Arts, all of whom are also active collaborators in the creation of the work. The Göteborg Opera and ShareMusic & Performing Arts have collaborated since 2014. The foundation to the work is that people have different ways of expressing themselves and that artistic differences are valuable.

An interview with director Stephen Langridge

World premiere on The Skövde Stage.
Also performed on tour in Västra Götaland, as well as on the Small Stage at The Göteborg Opera.
