Hector Parra
«Justice» Opera in five acts

The Congo, 2019: on a village street in a mining region a tanker carrying highly poisonous sulphuric acid rams into a bus. From this event, Milo Rau has devised a choral elegy about the fate of a village. In JUSTICE, the Artistic Director of the Wiener Festwochen blends the voices of ghosts and victims, those who are guilty and those who appear guilty with myths from the region. The libretto was co˗written by the Graz˗based Congolese author Fiston Mwanza Mujila, and the music by the Catalan composer Hèctor Parra. A performance by the Tonkunstler Orchestra that presents this multi˗layered work in Austria for the first time.
