As violence blazes, a young woman waits at the border of Zauberland—a magical world of security and peace. But while asleep, her dreams are haunted by images of the burnt-out city she was forced to abandon. Composer Bernard Foccroulle and writer Martin Crimp seamlessly interweave 16 new songs with Schumann’s Dichterliebe, a Romantic song cycle infused with yearning and fairy-tale landscapes. Katie Mitchell directs this New York premiere starring “ravishingly visceral” soprano Julia Bullock and pianist Cédric Tiberghien (New York Times).

“Bullock’s radiant soprano shines brightly and unfailingly. . . . she communicates intense, authentic feeling, as if she were singing right from her soul.”
