October 2013 - Zafraan Ensemble

Martin Smith of Berlin-based Zafraan Ensemble talked to Anna about their upcoming production in Basel. Hypermusic Prologue is a chamber opera that deals with hidden universes, the existential urge to research as well as our boundaries of understanding and interdependencies in the so-called real world. The central figure is a scientist, torn between her love for her partner and her passion for theoretical physics. In the course of the opera, she finds herself immersed in the fifth dimension, while her partner remains tied to normal space-time.
