Christoph Marthaler Letzte Tage. Ein Vorabend (Derniers Jours. Une veillée)


A century ago, Europe stood on the verge of the First World War. How has Europe faired since? Letzte Tage. Ein Vorabend, involving singers, actors and musicians, explores the roots of the tragedies of the XXth century. Letzte Tage is played to music composed by exiled or deported Jews. As racism and nationalism re-emerge in Europe, Christoph Marthaler questions the cyclical nature of history.
