Inspired by the Bernard-Marie Koltès play In the Solitude of Cotton Fields (1986), choreographer Adam Linder has created a new opera, THE WANT, with music by Ethan Braun and a libretto in co-operation with Sarah Lehrer-Graiwer.
The work premieres this week in Berlin, and will open in Hamburg in January. The cast of singers, actors, and dancers includes Jess Gadani, Justin F. Kennedy, Jasmine Orpilla, and Roger Sala Reyner.
