From the fictional medieval story of lust, love, social ostracism, repentance and grace in Wagner’s opera “Tannhäuser”, which premiered in 1845, the PODIUM Festival Esslingen has developed its own contemporary narrative together with a group of composers and the TikTok community. Here, the work created in digital form is performed in an analogue-digital manner. An actor, a chamber ensemble and TikTok clips on the monitor are all key elements of the production, complementing and commenting upon one another, reflecting both the plot of the TikTok opera as well as love utopias and realities in general. Rike Huys and Lukas Akintaya’s music, composed for TikTok, along with material from Wagner’s opera have been newly arranged by Malte Schiller for the live performance.
