‘Z’ Munich Festival

1 July, 2019 @ 8:00 pm

‘Z’. An Opera composed by Minas Borboudakis, and directed by Kevin Barz. A politically motivated murder, revealing the pitfalls and vulnerability of the bourgeois state: Doctor and member-of-parliament Grigoris Lambrakis – named Z – was murdered in the middle of the street on 22 May 1963. The brutal contract slaying was only solved thanks to the tireless research of the examining magistrate, Christos Sartzetakis, who later became the Greek President – a thriller made famous by Costa Gavras’ film of Vassilis Vassilikosʼ novel. Minas Borboudakis, the Greek composer now living in Munich, has now prepared it for the operatic stage. His opera celebrated its German language world premiere in Athens in 2018. He addresses the issue of the foundations of common good in a staging by young director Kevin Barz.
