Abstract

2016 marks the beginning of a new era in the history of one of the world’s leading festivals for new music-theatre: the Munich Biennale. After Hans-Werner Henze (1988–1994) and Peter Ruzicka (1996–2014) it will now be under the new joint artistic leadership of composers Daniel Ott and Manos Tsangaris. Their wide notion of what constitutes “music-theatre” and a radical re-thinking of the conventions, hierarchies and chronologies of creating new original works forms an integral part of how they seek to innovate the festival and its artistic processes. This conversation seeks to explore their conceptual thinking for the festival and understanding of music-theatre that drives them. The interview took place in November 2015, six months ahead of the launch of the Biennale 2016.
