about

I’d been meaning to create a chamber opera for Bolshoy Drama Theatre, we discussed it a lot with Andrey Moguchy. The actors and the instrumentalists at the BDT are amazing, they have huge experience in contemporary music. So I was able to work without any compromises and excuses. Actually, opera IS “the normal theatre”, and the appearance of operatic works in contemporary drama theatre is a natural phenomenon; it became possible at the BDT because it has the right kind of energy. I hope our work is characteristic of the general trend at the theatre.

I’d had a vague idea of what I wanted to do – even though I’m not particularly fond of the question “what is it about?” – I actually did understand what it was going to be about. And I really wanted the libretto to be written by Lev Semyonovich Rubinstein. Andrey called him, we met to talk and I mumbled, whined, groaned and danced trying to explain what I wanted. And eventually I somehow did explain that to him even though I’m not going to explain it to you. And he said he already had a text like that. You know, kind of like in that Kharms’ story : There already is such a fairy tale, said Lenochka. And I said that was impossible because I had read all Rubinstein’s texts – as I thought. But it turned out I had missed that one text (Further and Further) somehow. I opened it and immediately understood that was precisely the text that I needed.
