Directing-Duo Carolin Pienkos and Cornelius Obonya :'My happiness will no longer be found in your gaze', says Mozart's Singspiel. Probably the most cruel thing that can happen to loving people: the loss of their love. At the tender age of 12, Mozart composed 'Bastien und Bastienne', a little tragedy about the love aberrations of two young people - a childlike prelude to the opera 'Così fan tutte'. Bastien is unfaithful to his Bastienne, the abandoned suffers terribly. But the magician Colas knows how to help the young lovers with an all too human trick. Together with Angelo Pollak and other young singers, conductor Heinz Ferlesch and Barucco, we will show the audience at the HERBSTGOLD Festival the path of the lovers at the former workplace of Joseph Haydn.



From February 12, 2022 Cornelius Obonya can be seen at the Graz Opera in the role of Olai in the opera by Georg Friedrich Haas.
