A collaboration between composer Minna Leinonen, choreographer-director Petri Kekoni and librettist Hanna Weselius, Alma! is a kinetic opera for a group of singers, dancers and musicians. This interdisciplinary piece marks the first commissioned work for the CHANGEnsemble company helmed by Jutta Seppinen.
In a layered narrative connecting the past and the present and the eternal power struggles between people, Alma! examines the life of composer Alma Mahler side by side with the modern-day Lawyer and an artist named Aino.
