Hamburg Laeiszhalle: HERAKLEITOS, a new opera by Cyrus Meurant

In his brand new opera, composer Cyrus Meurant musically explores the surviving fragments of the pre-socratic Philosopher HERAKLEITOS. Philosophical concepts including One Cannot Step Into The Same River Twice and Fire Will Come Upon And Lay Hold Of All Things provide a timely opportunity for us to consider the human project of knowledge in the face of an inevitable demise, knowing that whilst all things come into being and pass away, the beginning and the end are common. The Kreuzberger Kamerata under the musical direction of Rebecca Lang collaborate with Birger Radde, Samantha Britt, and Ziad Nehme to bring this new work to life for the very first time.
