HOW WE FEEL # 3
HAPPINESS

Premiere on 4 February 2011 at Sophiensaele, Berlin

Inspired by motifs from Dorota Maslowska, Arnold Schönberg, Quentin Tarantino, Anton Tschechow and others.

Concept and libretto: Sven Holm and Malte Ubenauf

After Scream Queen (2008) and Exhaustion (2010) this is the third and final part of the NOVOFLOT opera series. In #3 the protagonists’ tedious expectations of happiness and faded beliefs are transformed into plans for the perfect robbery. And the hunt for the stolen diamonds takes them through every storey and room of the sophiensaele. A multiperspectival station drama for music, dance, language, film and chamber orchestra. “The sky’s gonna burst tonight … one false move and you go straight to hell.”
