Hochzeit im Fasching (Love Adrift)

contemporary opera 14 premiere

Comic opera in two parts, in three acts, in Hungarian with Hungarian and English surtitles

Dozens of people end up quarantined due to the bad weather. Emotions run high: those who shouldn’t, fall in love; those who are together, fall out of love. When locked in together, people learn a lot about each other. Instead of the wedding during carnival, a several days long quarantine party starts, forging a community from this rag-tag party, who follow the forbidden love between Kálmán, a student from the town of Csurgó, and Zsuzsika, a sensitive girl suffering from mild depression, with watchful eyes. And of course others fall in love as well, they devour their food rations, and the orchestra plays night and day, only to return to normal once the quarantine ends.
