    Die Stadt ohne Juden (Cancellation due to COVID-19)

    Graz, Oper Graz

    Stummfilm: Die Stadt ohne Juden  (Österreich, 1924)
    Regie: H.K. Breslauer
    Musik: Olga Neuwirth (2017)

    Der Stummfilm DIE STADT OHNE JUDEN (1924), eine der wichtigsten österreichischen Produktionen der Zwischenkriegszeit. H. K. Breslauers satirische Dystopie zeigt die kulturelle und wirtschaftliche Verarmung einer Stadt, die ihre jüdische Bevölkerung austreibt und ist in ihrer Darstellung des mörderischen Antisemitismus in Wien im Gefolge des Ersten Weltkriegs beunruhigend irritierend und prophetisch. Für Kinobesucher oder jeden, der sich für die Geschichte des 20. Jahrhunderts interessiert, ist dieser österreichische expressionistische Film unverzichtbar. Die österreichische Komponistin Olga Neuwirth wurde vom Wiener Konzerthaus und weiteren Partner beauftragt diesen außergewöhnlichen Film um eine musikalische Dimension zu erweitern. PHACE wird neben der Welturaufführung im Wiener Konzerthaus auch die britische (London) und deutsche Erstaufführung (Hamburg) bestreiten.

    Die Stadt ohne Juden - Olga Neuwirth (cancelled due to Covid-19)

    Graz, Oper Graz

    The City without Jews (Austria, 1924)

    directed by: Hans Karl Breslauer
    music: Olga Neuwirth (2017)

    The silent film THE CITY WITHOUT JEWS (1924), one of the most important Austrian productions of the interwar period. H. K. Breslauer's satirical dystopia shows the cultural and economic impoverishment of a city that drives out its Jewish population, and in its portrayal of murderous anti-Semitism in Vienna in the aftermath of the First World War, it is disconcertingly irritating and prophetic. For moviegoers or anyone interested in the history of the 20th century, this Austrian Expressionist film is indispensable. The Austrian composer Olga Neuwirth was commissioned by the Wiener Konzerthaus and other partners to extend this extraordinary film to a musical dimension...
