Eötvös: Golden Dragon – Swiss premiere

Swiss premiere   – 20 January 2022  – Geneva


Péter Eötvös’s opera focuses on the timeless subject of illegal immigration, seems on occasionally humorous but still raises profound social questions and could be considered a comical and dramatic work. Based on Roland Schimmelpfennig’s eponymous drama, the opera tells the story of characters of different generations, all of whom live above the Asian restaurant “The Golden Dragon”. In a series of rapidly changing, stylized vignettes, five singers take on twenty-five roles while narrating the stage directions.
