Opera premiere: Adam und Eva at Schwetzinger Festspiele 2025

Time flies: the next edition of the Schwetzinger SWR Festspiele will already see the world premiere of Adam und Eva by Mike Svoboda (music) and Anne-May Krüger (libretto). Co-produced by the Landestheater Linz/Austria, the piece will be staged by Andrea Moses and conducted by the composer. Click for more information.

New opera project: Die Schwarze Spinne

Anne-May will be featured both as librettist and lead singer in a new production of Heinrich Sutermeister's Die schwarze Spinne (1936). The re-working of Sutermeister's radio opera is part of the SNF-funded research project Code Word 'Black Spider”: Swiss Music Theater as a Resource for the Construction of Collective Identity of Hochschule der Künste Bern and Theater Orchester Biel Solothurn, starting in fall 2024. The premiere is scheduled for May 2026. More information to follow.

Interview

Anne-May talks about her book Musik über Stimmen. Vokalinterpretinnen und Interpreten der 1950er und 60er Jahre im Fokus hybrider Forschung (Wolke Hochheim) in an interview with Irene Kurka. More information and orders.

"This book, as fascinating as it is illuminating, bridges the gap between scientific research and artistic practice, and is definitely of interest not only to singers, but also to those who are passionate about the diverse expressions of the human voice." (Matthias Roth, Rhein-Neckar-Zeitung, Feb. 18, 2023)
