    Combination ticket (incl. EUR 28 for the wine tasting) can be purchased by phone with a credit card, in the webshop and at our box office in the foyer of Halle E+G at the MuseumsQuartier, limited number of participants.

A car wreck. Romantic melodies by Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy are playing on its radio. Composed between 1829 and 1845, the collection Songs Without Words consists of a total of 48 lyrical piano pieces. The contrast between the catastrophic smouldering car wreck and the dream melodies orchestrated and expanded upon by an electric chamber music trio is the starting point for the new music theatre production by Swiss director and set designer Thom Luz.
In a dense atmosphere, Lieder ohne Worte zooms straight into the vacuum of sheer shock. Together with the three musicians, two survivors attempt to reconstruct the accident. How did we manage to hit the wall? Do we still exist? And what now? Where words fail, tones assemble in a new way. In the interplay between catastrophic processes and cosy atmospheres, apocalyptic images or perhaps images of a new beginning emerge, detached from the course of time. A filigree and meticulously detailed Gesamtkunstwerk.
