Worlpremiere at the Salzburger Festspiele, Salzburg, AT, tonight July 26th, 2016

This opera version of Luis Buñuel’s 1962 surrealist classic film, was a long-standing ambition for Thomas Adès, as revealed in interviews preceding the premiere at the Salzburger Festival.

The original setting, a dinner party at the lavish mansion of Señor Edmundo Nobile and his wife, Lucia, has been staged by Bechtler on the ultra-wide stage of the Grosses Festspielhaus by accommodating elaborate and luxurious furniture around the huge predominant wooden portal, evoking a room door from which apparently a way out is not possible. The rich and colorful costumes are perfectly integrated with the setting. Very interesting is the combination of colors, both of materials and lights, which reveal how important chromatism is to Bechtler, as she happened to say.

Hildegard Bechtler (1951) is an award-winning German costume and set designer. Born and raised in Stuttgart, she has been working in the UK since the 1970’s. She designed sets for several plays on the London stage as well as in opera.
