Today : world première of 'Die Banalität der Liebe' by Ella Milch-Sheriff in Regensburg

Today, the Theater Regensburg presents the world première of Die Banalität der Liebe (The Banality of Love), an opera composed by Ella Milch-Sheriff with a libretto by Savyon Liebrecht.

It is the composer's third opera after And the Rat laughed (Tel-Aviv, 2005) and Baruch's Silence (Braunschweig, 2010).
This opera discusses central questions of recent German history : questions about delusion, guilt and the nature of evil. And of love. (freely adapted from the Theater Regensburg website)
The cast includes soprano Sara-Maria Saalmann (Hannah Arendt jung), mezzo Vera Semieniuk (Hannah Arendt alt), tenor Angelo Pollak (Martin Heidegger jung), baritone Adam Kruzel (Martin Heidegger alt), baritone Matthias Störmer (Rafael Mendelson), tenor Matthias Laferi (Michael Mendelson) and bass Mario Klein (Gideon Hausner).
