sirene Operntheater presents the festival “Die Verbesserung der Welt” – world première of 7 new chamber operas. As part of this, the Ensemble Zeitfluss under the conductor Edo Micic will perform the premiere and three subsequent performances of “Elsa”, Margareta Ferek-Petric’s operatic debut.

Three adolescent pupils bet on which of them will get a woman to undress over the holidays. A photo is to prove it. Spoilt Nicolas wants to solve this task as usual – with money. He persuades the indebted cleaning lady Elsa to undress in front of him and have her photo taken for a fee. A modern paraphrase of Schnitzler’s Fräulein Else.
