Sternenhoch, by Ivan Acher

Dec 21, 2019 – Jan 8, 2020
Národní 2, 110 00 Nové Město, Czechia

Blink, and you’ll miss it. Despite some favorable press last season, two of four performances originally announced this season have been canceled. A macabre tour de force adapted from the prose of Kafka’s contemporary Ladislav Klíma, Sternhoch acquaints us with a prince haunted by the ghost (or is it the cadaver?) of a young woman he has subjected to depravities beyond imagining. The Nutcracker this isn’t. Sung in Esperanto. Feliĉan Kristnaskon! (That’s “Merry Christmas!” to you.) —M.G.
