CIVIC OPERA CREATIONS (COCREATIONS) is a producer for new innovative music theater and opera created in dialogue and thought exchange between communities and artists. In connection with new technologies and impulses from interdisciplinary scenes,we expand the traditional opera space and its narratives. Founded in Vienna in 2020, COCREATIONS builds bridges between traditional and new structures and creates new methods of cooperation and reference to establish opera as a representative part of the 21st century and a place for repeated encounters.

GREAT OPEN EYES
WORLD PREMIERE AT THEATER MÜNSTER
The new opera Great Open Eyes connects characters from Ibsen's Little Eyolf with the experiences of grieving parents of our time and expresses the personal theme of grief in its many facets of shock, disbelief, connection, and love. In a soul landscape, the audience, arranged in a circle, encounters Rita and Alfred, whose son Eyolf drowned. Thirty-five musicians, four singers, and two conductors create an emotional and atmospheric experience that, together with a video installation as a pre- or epilogue, opens a space for connection, understanding, and hope.
