On 6th May, Otto Tausk will conduct the world premiere of Swiss composer David Philip Hefti’s “Annas Maske”, at the Theater St. Gallen.
The opera, commissioned by St. Gallen Opera, is based on the novella of the same name written by Alain Claude Sulzer and published in 2001, and tells the story of the acclaimed star of the Stuttgart Opera, Anna Sutter, who was murdered on 29 June 1910 by her former lover and conductor, Aloys Obrist. Further performances will take place throughout May and June.
