The Knife's Darwin Opera Gets Show Date
- Words: Jennifer Marston
Last December, word surfaced that The Knife was penning an opera supposedly inspired by Charles Darwin. Tomorrow, in a Year, it seems, is a reality, as the Swedish brother/sister duo has a confirmed premiere date of September 2, 2009, at Copenhagen's Royal Danish Theatre.
Subsequent performances will take place on September 4 and 5, and then the show goes on the road, though not far beyond the borders of Denmark. But with Planningtorock and Mount Sims cited as musical collaborators and Danish theater group Hotel Pro Forma on board, this might be an event worth the money the plane trip will cost. Karin Dreijer’s Fever Ray website has information on tickets to each performance.
Tomorrow, in a Year:
09/02 Copenhagen, Denmark - Royal Danish Theatre
09/04 Copenhagen, Denmark - Royal Danish Theatre
09/05 Copenhagen, Denmark - Royal Danish Theatre
