Arthur Schnitzlers Reigen

Together with Regina Fritsch and Sven-Eric Bechtolf, Franui presents ten scenes, each of which is characterised by a different musical milieu: the Bohemian Reigen housemaid goes hand in hand with Gustav Mahler; Erik Satie tickles the ivories in the private parlour; the poet’s explanations are accompanied by the sounds of John Cage; and an aria by Giuseppe Verdi resounds in the conjugal bedroom stirring memories of the honeymoon in Italy. The artists, seated on twelve chairs, act and read. The result is a special evening with its own unique format: not a concert, not a reading, not a performance of a play, not music theatre, not an audio drama – and yet, a bit of everything.
