Dress rehearsal

Opera by Ella Milch-Sheriff

In German language with German and English surtitles

Alma Mahler-Werfel: composer, muse, femme fatale – myth. Like no other, she is an imago of sensuality and a symbol of fin-de-siècle Vienna. The new opera Alma by the Israeli composer Ella Milch-Sheriff focuses on an aspect that has so far received little attention in the numerous artistic adaptations of Alma Mahler-Werfel’s biography: Alma, the mother.

With this world premiere, the Vienna Volksoper stages one of the city’s great female personalities through the eyes of a female composer.
