World premiere

A world premiere as part of the Festtage im Festspielhaus programme! The opera buffa Impresario Dotcom was due to be staged first at Bregenz’s Theater am Kornmarkt, but now at the suggestion of director Elisabeth Stöppler and her team the Festspielhaus will present the work in a version specially adapted for Bregenz 2020. The spacious stage of the Großer Saal is big enough for performers to be able to maintain the physical distancing required during the pandemic. Stöppler will direct a pared-down staging of Ľubica Čekovská’s contemporary opera buffa with the libretto by Laura Olivi based on the comedy by Carlo Goldoni. The work has been shortened for the performance by the composer and the production team.
