From Melancholia to Fanny and Alexander to Alexander Ekman
After a completely sold out run at the Royal Swedish Opera, a phenomenal reception from the press and the audience (much younger than usual, and many many newcomers), I am back in NYC listening through the recorded sound from the show that will go with the tv broadcast of the show, directed by Andreas Morell for EuroArts Music. The show will reach a myriad of tv networks in 2024.
Melancholia now has its own page on the website, under WORKS/OPERA.
My work now turns to Fanny and Alexander for the La Monnaie Opera House in Brussels. Once again, Royce Vavrek is the librettist, writing the opera with me, and this time around legendary director Ivo van Hove and his team joins us. We premiere Fanny and Alexander in December 2024.
2024 will se the returns of many of Alexander Ekman’s pieces for which I have written the music. Midsummer Night’s Dream will return with the Joffrey Ballet, with the Royal Swedish Ballet and with the Dortmund Ballet this coming spring.
