HOUSE OF GOOD SPIRITS, THE (HAUS DER GUTEN GEISTER, DAS)

HOUSE OF GOOD SPIRITS, THE
© FAVO Film

The ethos of the Stuttgart State Opera has lead the house to achieve exceptional international success – even though or maybe precisely because the artistic directorship of Jossi Wieler is unique throughout the world of opera: Classical music theater as an integrative shared work, which is created transparently, through dialogue. The film accompanies the creation of Tchaikovsky's The Queen of Spades with Wieler, Morabito, Viebrock and Cambreling. During the rehearsals, acclaimed Russian film and theater director Kirill Serebrennikov is arrested on political grounds by the Russian authorities shortly before his work on a new production in Stuttgart is due to begin. The Stuttgart State Opera now has to decide how they will handle this incident.
