Event Details

Opera in four acts
Libretto by Nicolas-François Guillardin
French with German subtitles

Murder in the name of the gods, murder in the name of revenge: It is a family story written in blood and its last chapter bears the name of Iphigénie who is forced to kill strangers as a sacrifice to the gods whilst living as a priestess in exile. When one day one of the strangers reminds her of her brother, memories arise from a fog of oblivion: memories of her father, her mother, her beloved brother and her youth that was overshadowed by war. That Iphigénie lives alongside other women who carry their own internal ghosts around – a chorus of the last witnesses of changing times.
