A new music theater piece by Wolfgang Böhmer and Martin G. Berger
after Eine Mordgeschichte by Tankred Dorst in cooperation with Ursula Ehler
World Premiere on January, 1 with additional performances through March 3.
The whole city is only talking about Elfie. Everything that she presumes to do! After all, she’s a mother and the wife of the irreproachable high school teacher Mr. Steinheuer. Everything is too small for Elfie, the city, these people, her own life. With her provocations, she poses – and still today, many years after the text was written – the question: how much free will, how much freedom can we actually take as individuals and as a society?
We have Tankred Dorst to thank for Elfie, an author who marked the German theater landscape for decades like only a few others. Tankred passed away last summer; he was a friend of ours and a loyal visitor of our productions for many years.
