One of the most dignified concert halls in Europe – Berlin Konzerthaus - will present the performances of Arvo Pärt/Robert Wilson “Adam´s Passion” on March 27th, 28th and 29th 2018.
“Adam’s Passion” is a large scale masterwork of modern music theatre, a story of beginnings and destinies of humankind, created by two giants in the international scenery of music and arts for decades: Arvo Pärt (born 1935), one of the most played contemporary composers of our time, and Robert Wilson (born 1941), one of the most sought-after stage directors worldwide. Pärt, an Estonian, whose compositions stand out due to their clear harmonies and unmistakable beauty, and Wilson, a Texan, a Grand Master of Lighting, whose personal experiences function as the motivation and inspiration for his staging.
In “Adam’s Passion”, Robert Wilson creates a poetic visual world in which the mystical musical language of Arvo Pärt can cast its meditative spell.
Three of Pärt’s major works – Adam’s Lament, Tabula rasa, and Miserere, as well as Sequentia, a new work composed especially for this production – are brought together here using light, space, and movement to create a tightly-woven Gesamtkunstwerk in which the artistic visions of these two great artists mirror each other.
