Eufrides in front of the Gates of Tymen / Johanes doctor Faust
The performance of two operas by Josef Berg (1927–1971), exclusively prepared for the Opera Nova 2018 festival, by the Brno Contemporary Orchestra. The demythisation of myth, the celebration of failure, a profound message in a “shallow” farce. That all is synonymous with Josef Berg, a Renaissance figure of the post-war avant-garde. A true master of mystification, a pioneer of performance art, an original composer, writer and dramatist rolled into one. The operas treat a great theme within a small space.
