“It is a dream game-like fantasy that revolves around how Ada’s (Anneli Jupiter) creative impulses are torn between reason and emotion. They are represented by her parents, the poet Lord Byron (Håkan Ekenäs) and the mathematician Lady Byron (Kristina Hansson Unander) – here depicted as two ghostly bust figures in white marble. There are chromatic textures in the music that run like soft wave movements through the orchestra – first piano and strings with small splashes of woodwind, which then swells out a full orchestral storm that manages to both sound modern and capture a gothic atmosphere” Loretto Villalobos, SvD

“Musically the most intricate is Christofer Elgh’s Ada, here there is a chromatic line in Ada (Anneli Jupiter) that is skilfully varied in her fight against her father Lord Byron, while the voices are woven together without losing their identities” Claes Wahlin, Aftonbladet

Success for the opera Alice in Wonderland in Taberg’s mine!

“Christofer Elgh’s newly written music is both playful and powerful and it gives a lot of space”

“The performance highlights the bizarre and humorous sides of Alice in Wonderland, not least through the fantastic costumes and scenography”

“Likewise, the performance highlights the philosophical sides of Lewis Carolls Reality is turned upside down, upside down, magnified and diminished – nothing is ever as you think. We hear bells ticking and going without anyone really catching up “,

” All artistic expressions complement each other and contribute to a unity – a work of art – and an experience beyond the ordinary “.

Johan Fingal JP
