An inquiry about love
Libretto by the composer
World premiere on 15 November 2019 at the Deutsche Oper Berlin
The works of award-winning composer Chaya Czernowin have been performed worldwide at significant new music festivals and prestigious venues. Commissioned by Deutsche Oper Berlin and widely acclaimed in the critical press, ‘Heart Chamber’ uses voice and stage as internalised sonic and visual landscapes to create a genuine multi-sensory musical experience. With only two characters and a hint of a narrative, this is a grand opera on the smallest of transformations, focussing on the beauty and vulnerabilities of falling in love. ‘It is seldom that audiences at the DOB have listened with such rapture to a new commission’ (Online Merker).
Director Uli Aumüller’s feature film ‘I did not rehearse to say I love’ is also included to DVD/BD releases and takes a behind-the-scenes look at the creation of the opera.
The Blu-ray features Dolby Atmos surround sound.
