‘J.S. Bach: das Kapital’

9 Feb.'23

In 1729, Johann Sebastian Bach composed the church cantata Was frag ich nach der Welt (What should I ask of the world?). Zamus, the centre for early music in Cologne, is now giving the work a contemporary twist. A creative team under the direction of composer Leonhard Bartussek and choreographer Alexandra Waierstall creates a wild mix of music, dance and visual elements, interweaving past and present, while not shying away from social criticism. Belgian Griet de Geyter, an established name in the international music scene and a specialist in vocal baroque, also dazzles as soprano.
