Record: a Radio Opera by Ludwig Abraham and Mocrep

  • Co-Prosperity Sphere 3219 South Morgan Street Chicago, IL, 60608 United States (map)

The mostly overlooked style of radio opera, in German "Funkoper", combines a live performance and a simultaneous production of a radio broadcast. In a collaboration between German composer Ludwig Abraham and the American ensemble Mocrep, the different potentials and possible modes of perception of the used media will be put to a test. Four musicians on stage are joined by a narrator or disc jockey that can be heard in the broadcast only. Broadcast by Lumpen Radio.

This production is sponsored by the Goethe-Institut Chicago.
