We recommend the performance from ages 18 and up.

Hard-core Mozart. Calixto Bieito presents womankind as the object of male passions and desires, right up to the brutal dismemberment of the female body. And at the centre of this production we see the absurd love between the perpetrator and his victim – and Mozart’s music as an oasis of humanity. Bieto’s »scandalous« production »gripped people and divided them into haters and fans ... For some people it may be an experience that crosses the boundaries of taste, but for others it is a cleansing experience that cathartically touches on the wellspring of theatre, and which turns brutality into a ritual and gives it a higher aesthetic truth.« [Die Welt]
