CHAMBER OPERA IMPROV NIGHT

A NEW FORMAT
OPERA. Times completely different
On this evening only one thing is certain: that there is absolutely no security. 4 singers from the Salzburg Chamber Opera compete in order to freely develop scenes, texts and even music on topics that you as the audience specify. There are no rehearsed texts or arias, everything arises in the same moment and in front of your eyes - and you choose the topic as the audience. This unique event takes place in the Living Room Salzburg. So secure your place, make yourself comfortable with beer and popcorn and lean back for the most unforeseen evening at the opera in Salzburg's history!

ABSOLUTE FUNCTIONAL SILENCE.
The latest coup of the Salzburg Chamber Opera exudes the charm of an old-fashioned video game - brought to a standstill by the catastrophe.
Perhaps the online opera is nothing new in the West, but nothing in the South is a particularly sophisticated metaphor for the general stagnation - between grand opera and sound collage.
A NOWHERE MADE OF SMALL SCRAPS
"There is nothing to see here": The trained Austrian shudders at this frequently used phrase. In the latest production of the Salzburg Chamber Opera, "Nothing new in the west. But neither in the south", the sentence reflects the situation of two stranded people. In their second digital opera together, librettist Konstantin Paul and composer Gordon Safari expose a couple in nowhere ...
NEW OPERA GOES ON THE INTERNET
The Salzburg Chamber Opera has successfully shown its current work “Nothing new in the West, but neither in the South” online. The opera about two lonely surfers in the universe was produced exclusively on the computer. More details about the piece in the print magazine of our cultural partner "Orpheus".

THINGS LEFT UNSAID.
