The actress Johanna Wokalek and the mezzo-soprano Marianne Crebassa embody the title role in the opera Charlotte Salomon, which has its world premiere at the Felsenreitschule on July 28, 2014.  Johanna Wokalek plays Charlotte Salomon, the real person who conveyed the story of her life to future generations through pictures, texts and musical references, and whom dramaturge Konrad Kuhn describes as a “girl with a Berlin loudmouth and an irony bordering on the sarcastic”. Marianne Crebassa takes on the role of Charlotte Kann, the fictional ego of Charlotte Salomon, the protagonist actively involved in the stage narrative. Let us introduce you to this central work of the Festival summer.

In her fascinating work Leben? oder Theater?, a unique combination of images, texts and musical quotations, the young Jewish artist tried to come to terms with the dramatic events of her life. This work inspired Dalbavie for his composition.
