Details / Lisätietoja
Kari Tikka's opera, Love is as Potent as Death, gets its world premiere at the Alexander Theater on April 23rd 2020. The opera expresses, with its brilliant and beautiful expression, the hope for the salvation of all mankind and earthly creation. The opera also challenges the traditional moralistic notion of good and evil: music and dance meet the hidden depths of man in a strange but warm way. Scenes and costumes designed by Anna Kontek play a central role in the visual esthetic that drives the story.
