Trailer for Akademia (camera: Lucas Dülligen, editing: Chnucki Erdbeer)
2019, opera, duration approx 3.5 hrs
Akademia is an experimental opera, for which I composed the music for two of the five scenes. It was instigated and led by Aylin Leclaire, and was staged outdoors in Malkasten Park, Düsseldorf, in June 2019.
Using an innovative structure, the opera questions the limits of creative freedom in the academy, and the ways in which artistic ‘success’ is defined under capitalism.
