Never In New York

S2020 E22 | FULL EPISODE

The Makropulos Affair

Czech composer Leoš Janáček's 1926 opera "The Makropulos Affair" seems at first like a stuffy judicial drama, but then gets a surprising supernatural twist. In this rendition for the 2011 Salzburg Festival, Swiss director Cristoph Marthaler uses his absurdist approach to highlight the strange déjà vu moments that run throughout the opera. Presented as part of the Never in New York Festival.
