The Essence of a Living Art Form

Operasje Per Boye HansenPer Boye Hansen, artistic director of the Norwegian National Opera in Oslo, is a force to be reckoned with.  Not only  does he have great ambitions to consolidate the Norwegian Opera’s position as a bright star in the galaxy of world class opera, he is also giving Nordic opera a welcome vitamin boost by putting greater focus on new work. Starting with the 2014 premiere of a new opera based on the material of Ibsen’s Peer Gynt by Estonian composer Jüri Reinvere (who will also be with us at Operastorming #1) the Norwegian National Opera will present a new work every season. And to get the opera innovation juices flowing even further, he and Michael Boder (another Operastorming key contributor)  have a Nordic Biennale for new work in the pipeline.

When asked in an interview last year about the importance of new repertoire, this is one of the things he had to say: “It is indeed very important to develop new repertoire. This is the essence of a living art form”. At Operastorming #1 he will dig deeper into this notion and share his insights on an array of relevant topics, including the creative process and the frameworks needed to support it.

Opera on!

Jüri Reinveres Multifaceted Meanings at Operastorming #1

reinvere_helilooja

The Estonian composer Jüri Reinvere had great success with his first opera PURGE (after Sofi Oksanens award winning novel) at the Helsinki Opera last year. Now he is tackling the material of Ibsens Peer Gynt, scheduled to premiere at the Norwegian national Opera & Ballet in 2014.

Jüri Reinvere will be sharing his insights with us at Operastorming #1 

Sofi Oksanen and Gerhard Lock describe Jüri Reinvere (full article):

“Typically for Reinvere meanings are multifaceted, he moves beyond genre limitations, and recognizes the natural transition from music to poetry. In music he uses materials ranging from traditional instruments to sounds of nature and accompanying sounds of interpretation—and among the latter, most particularly, breathing—or phenomena that relate to sound environments like the echo in a room. Reinvere’s ease with crossing boundaries comes also from his having lived in societies with contrasting lifestyles and belief systems: the atheistic Soviet world replaced by Catholic Poland and followed by Lutheran Finland. Reinvere also lived for an extended period in Stockholm. In 2005, he established his permanent home in Berlin.”
