Received in the mail this morning : program book for 'The Colour' by Gerhard Stäbler in Würzburg
This Wednesday morning, I have received in the mail the program book published by the Mainfranken Theater in Würzburg for the world première performance of Gerhard Stäbler's opera The Colour.
It is a 28 pages brochure. It contains :
- the complete cast and crew ;
- the synopsis, as a list of events happening in the opera ;
- a detailed biography of the composer ;
- an interview with the composer about his opera ;
- two excerpts of H. P. Lovecraft's The Color out of Space ;
- an article on the writer H. P. Lovecraft ;
- biographies of conductor, director and video designer.
It is entirely in German. The covers of all the program books of contemporary operas I have are here.
