"While violence is brewing in the Middle East, a young woman is waiting at the European border with the hope of entering the Zauberland - a magical world of security and peace, but when she falls asleep, her dreams are haunted by strange images of a bombed city she was forced to leave.
Schumann's Dichterliebe - 16 lieder on poems by Heinrich Heine - is a quintessential work of European romanticism, imbued with a desire for love and fairytale landscapes that no longer exist. Composer Bernard Foccroulle and writer Martin Crimp have created 16 new compositions that will be harmoniously contrasted with the original work of Schumann and Heine. Without ever losing sight of the pure beauty of the words, they open a new dramatic dialogue between the past and the present, between "Fortress Europe" and its Eastern Mediterranean origins."
