Â€œMichaels Reise um die Erdeâ€ [Michael's Journey Around the World] is the second act of the opera â€œDonnerstagâ€ [Thursday] from the seven-part opera cycle â€œLichtâ€ [Light] by Karlheinz Stockhausen, a cosmic world theatre in which three protagonists set the tone: Michael as Prince of Angels who appears in human shape to lead mankind to God; Eva as Power of Love, of Life; Lucifer as fallen angel and adversary. To each of these three figures has been assigned a characterizing melody (a musical â€œformulaâ€); these three formulas unfold through the musical action of the entire opera cycle.
In 2008, after performances in Vienna, Cologne, Venice and Dresden, the Ensemble Musikfabrik performed â€œMichaels Reiseâ€ twice at the Theatre Bobigny in Paris at the Festival d'Automne. The production created in collaboration with Carlus Padrissa from the Catalan theatre company â€œLa Fura dels Bausâ€ (director), Roland Olbeter (stage) and Franc Aleu (video animation) was received with great enthusiasm by the audience, and the performance of the Ensemble Musikfabrik with their member Marco Blaauw, who acted as soloist, received great acclaim from the press and the public. The live recording of these two successful concerts is now released by WERGO as part of the edition Musikfabrik .
A production by Ensemble Musikfabrik.
