SCENATET has been invited by KLANG Festival to perform Salvatore Sciarrino’s compelling masterpiece: Aspern Suite (1979) in 2018.

With Aspern Suite, SCENATET will stage an evening at the same time deeply enticing, disturbing and extremely sensuous. This is a dramatic study in timelessness filled with history and a study in silence – all while we await the darkness.

Aspern Suite is abstractly based on Henry James’ novel The Aspern Papers – it is all dreamy sensations, darkness and transparency only interrupted by the piercing soprano reaching for the audience with an abstract mix of speech, song, sound and silence.

Italian Salvatore Sciarrino is the avant-garde composer par excellence. SCENATET premiered the opera Infinito Nero in Copenhagen in 2015, and performed it with great success at the international festival Warsaw Autumn in 2016.
