A marathon performance will be staged of a large portion of the LICHT cycle, composed by Karlheinz Stockhausen. Featuring selected highlights from the seven operas – one for each day of the week – it will offer a spectacular overview of Stockhausen's masterpiece. The three parts of aus LICHT can also be visited seperately.

The second part of aus LICHT starts with the appropriate bom - bast and grandeur. Lucifer appears on stage, accompanied by fanfare, ringing of bells, fairy tale percussion and an eightymen orchestra. In three compositions from SAMSTAG aus LICHT (SAMSTAGS-GRUSS, KATHINKAs GESANG als LUZIFERs REQUIEM and LUZIFERs TANZ) Lucifer takes form and is challenged by Michael. The atmosphere changes completely afterr this mythical battle, with Eve as the central figure in four compositions from MONTAG aus LICHT. Three children’s choirs emphasise her role as the creator of life. It ends with the scenes DER KINDERFÄNGER and ENTFÜHRUNG, Stockhausen’s version of The Pied Piper of Hamelin.
