    OperaCall is an opera installation for the glass façade of the Akademie der Künste at Pariser Platz as well as for the entire premises of the Kölner Philharmonie. Freely accessible, the project includes twelve premieres by different composers who reconsider the 3rd and unfinished act of the opera Moses und Aaron by Arnold Schönberg.

    With a libretto based on texts by Jo Frank and Ulrich Holbein, the project is conceived as a three-dimensional transformation of Schönberg's twelve-tone technique into public space and opens up the perspective of a specially developed site-specific opera format that seeks to combine analog and digital theater perception. Between opera performance and film, music-theatrical exhibition and audio walk, scenic exploration and newly composed music, a hybrid format emerges that can be experienced in analog form inside the Akademie der Künste and in digital-visual form outside.

    OperaCall is the 2nd part of the multi-station project The Theory of Harmony. Further parts will be premiered in 2024 at the Kunstfest Weimar, the Musikfestival Bern and the Kölner Philharmonie.
