Soprano Lissa Meyvis and pianist Thomas Eeckhout are writing a new story based on a selection of Mörike songs.
The German priest and poet Edouard Mörike (1804-1875) tried to escape the dullness of his profession by writing about animals that talk, mermaids, immortal knights and love. The Austrian composer Hugo Wolf (1860-1903) set fifty-three of these poems to music. Through this work he became one of the most important composers of songs in the German language area. The singer Lissa Meyvis and pianist Thomas Eeckhout are writing a new story based on a selection of Mörike songs. Windischgrätz, the village where Hugo Wolf was born, is the name of the imaginary village where this production is set. Wouter Van Looy directs this graduation project at the Antwerp Conservatoire.
A TRANSLAB-project by Muziektheater Transparant in collaboration with Koninklijk Conservatorium Antwerpen.
