Miss Fortune at Bregenzer Festspiele

A new commission and world premiere, the opera Miss Fortune opened to great acclaim on July 21st 2011 at the Festspielhaus of the Bregenzer Festspiele, a landmark performance festival that also boasts an impressive floating stage on the picturesque Lake Constance.

Backed by Leigh Sachwitz’ visuals throughout, the whirlwind opera takes its heroine – and audience – on a fantastical and dreamlike rollercoaster ride that transcends the facets of luck, love and loss.

A careful blend of abstract animations and real footage, often spliced together, the resulting contextual contents highlight the drifting protagonist’s rites of passage with visual premonitions, allusions to star signs – and obvious signs of fate itself.
