Rediscovering Offenbach: Felicitas Wetzel’s “Deine Operette – Ein Portrait in mehreren Stimmen”


An interview with Felicitas Wetzel, a German sound artist who created a concert performance with Offenbach music and quotes called Deine Operette – Ein Portrait in mehreren Stimmen (“Your Operetta – A Portrait in Several Voices”). It is a live radio play for eight narrators, cello and sound. We asked Miss Wetzel about this project, and why she chose Offenbach and his opéra bouffe Ba-Ta-Clan as the center of her “portrait.”
