SEVEN STONES - Accentus English version

SEVEN STONES

Program

Ondrej Adámek
Seven Stones
(commissioned by Festival d’Aix, world creation

What do Icelandic volcanos, bars in Prague or Kurdistan villages have in common? Stone is the common theme of this original work by young Czech composer Ondřej Adámek, one of the leading representatives of the European new wave. Based on a libretto by the Icelander Sjón, the opera’s seven tableaux evoke seven stones, seven scenes that connect the Biblical era to modern times. This very condensed interdisciplinary work proposes a new performance canvas in which the singers are invited to double up as instrumentalists, dancers and actors. A perfect opportunity for accentus / axe 21, a vocal ensemble specialised in the contemporary repertory, to join forces.
