Christoph Schlingensief date of death

12 years ago today, Christoph Schlingensief passed away much too early at the age of 49. His ideas accompany us and our work to this day.

“What does opera mean here? The place, the village we want to build, is not there so that arias can be sung here later or symphony orchestras can play. My idea of the Opera Village is always connected with the hope that together, with the commitment and money of many, we will create this organism that will develop a life of its own, through us and above all through the people who are there.” Christoph Schlingensief
