The Berlin opera company NOVOFLOT is developing a three-part cycle with the modest aim of triggering a genre “reboot.”
In this trilogy, based on exploring the work of opera’s “founding father,” Claudio Monteverdi, the artist collective reflects on what path the genre might have taken had more works by the master from Mantua survived – a mere three operas have been preserved, the majority of his œuvre remains lost. Novoflot examines the existing material and asks how differently opera might look and sound today.
Having used “Orfeo” as a sound source to generate a “big bang” of the history of opera in the first part of the cycle, the company will now inspect Monteverdi’s last opera “The incoronation of Poppea” in The Opera #2. This is meant in the truest sense of the word, as NOVOFLOT explores the work by touring the Weimar National Theatre, on an expedition to follow the traces left by rare fragments of undiscovered Monteverdi operas.
