Death Knocks by Christian Jost

Death Knocks

My little opera company MusikTeaterVerket is one of the things that I’m most proud of having created. Together with director Ola Beskow we have struggled on since 1996 and done more than 10 productions.
Two years ago we found an opera composed by Christian Jost with text by Woody Allen! An irresistable mix we thought and decided to play the opera in Kronhuset together with musicians from Gothenburg Wind Orchestra and conductor Jerker Johansson.
A Swedish translation was made by Ture Rangström which gave the piece the new title ”Döden knackar på” and director Mattias Ermedahl gave myself and Åke Zetterström brilliant comic ideas to work with.
Playing Death is definitely one of the most fun things I’ve ever done!
