For every artist with interest in contemporary music, John Cage is a very important composer. He didn’t write much opera music, but one pice that he wrote in the end of his career is the ”Europeras”. Me and MusikTeaterVerket have for quite some time had the performance ”Europera 3&4” prepared, but we had difficulties in finding the right stage for the production. But after a successful meeting with Staffan Rydén (principal of Gothenburg Academy of Music and Drama) and the dedicated Birgitta Winnberg (artistic leader of Gothenburg Dance- and Theatre festival) we found the perfect match!
At Artisten, Gothenburg 26/8 2010 we were proud to present the Swedish premiere of John Cage’s ”Europera 3 & 4”!
