We are delighted to announce a special musical evening, in collaboration with the Salzburg State Theatre, showcasing excerpts from the modern opera "Anthropocene" by Scottish composer Stuart MacRae. This preview event will offer a glimpse into the opera ahead of its Austrian premiere in May 2024.

Artistic Director of the Salzburg State Theatre, Carl Philip von Maldeghem, composer Stuart MacRae, singers Anita Giovanna Rosati and Meredith Hoffmann-Thomson and pianist Eleonora Siciliano will present excerpts from the opera and discuss this remarkable work, which seamlessly blends opera with compelling stage drama.
Join us for an exclusive sneak peek at this extraordinary new production!

"Anthropocene" is a thrilling opera for the 21st century! Set aboard an exploration vessel trapped in Arctic ice, a team of scientists and a wealthy individual encounter a mysterious creature that challenges their understanding of life and death. This gripping operatic thriller unfolds in a world reshaped by climate change and humanity's impact on our planet Earth.

Stuart MacRae (*1976) is considered one of the most intriguing contemporary composers. He has composed for the London Sinfonietta and BBC Proms and served as Composer-in-Residence with the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra. "Anthropocene" marks his fourth collaboration with librettist Louise Welsh, who has also gained recognition as a writer.
