Erwartung  (Expectation)

Music by Arnold Schoenberg


The Schoenberg opera “Erwartung” is a psychological drama of a woman who is lost between reality and a dream life.  She passionately searches for her lover amidst confusion, thinking she had killed him or lost him to another lover, yet continues to search for him.

The set and lighting design enhance the personal atmosphere of the opera.  The set is built entirely of recycled materials like plastic bottles and old newspapers.  Chiaroscuro lighting reveals all nuances of the changing scenes.
