FILM | VIOLETTA'S GHOSTS Max Hoehn - Opera Lab Europe
A short film in black and white by Max Hoehn and Opera Lab Europe.Violetta’s Ghosts is a short animated film based on Verdi’s La Traviata. The haunting music of the opera’s prelude forms the soundtrack. In the opening sequence a young woman, Violetta, confronts a giant X-Ray of her chest. Faced with her own mortality, she escapes into a fragile world of dreams and memories. The film was made using an unusual mixture of animation, contemporary and archive footage. Directed by Max Hoehn (a prize-winner at last year’s European Opera Directing Prize), the film is intended as both an experiment in form and an exploration of the inner world of one of Verdi’s most memorable characters using this touching musical fragment.

'Biedermann and the Arsonists' Trailer, November 2015
"Don’t you know the thrill that fire has to offer? The first feeble flames, the sirens in the distance, the howling of dogs, the ear piercing screams…and ashes." Independent Opera at Sadler’s Wells marks its 10th year with the UK premiere of Šimon Voseček’s Biedermann and the Arsonists, based on the classic absurdist play by Swiss dramatist and novelist Max Frisch, in a new translation by David Pountney. The production is directed by the 2015 Independent Opera Director Fellow Max Hoehn. Timothy Redmond conducts the Britten Sinfonia, and Mark Le Brocq and Leigh Melrose head a superb cast including some of the finest UK-trained singers. Frisch’s provocative parable of middle class life follows the downfall of the complacent and weak-willed Gottlieb Biedermann, a successful businessman faced with the arrival of two sinister strangers in his attic.
