part 2

LUCIFER AND EVE

Time and duration

Start time: 3.00 pm 
End time: approx. 9.15 pm

For dedicated listeners, the performance starts with an electronic composition, FREITAGS-GRUSS starting at 1.15 pm; and continues with the electronic composition FREITAGS-ABSCHIED, which ends at approx. 10.35 pm.

The second part of aus LICHT starts with the appropriate bombast and grandeur. Lucifer appears on stage, accompanied by fanfare, ringing of bells, fairy tale percussion and an eightymen orchestra. In three compositions from SAMSTAG aus LICHT (SAMSTAGS-GRUSS, KATHINKAs GESANG als LUZIFERs REQUIEM and LUZIFERs TANZ) Lucifer takes form and is challenged by Michael. The atmosphere changes completely after this mythical battle, with Eve as the central figure in four compositions from MONTAG aus LICHT. Three children’s choirs emphasise her role as the creator of life. It ends with the scenes DER KINDERFÄNGER and ENTFÜHRUNG, Stockhausen’s version of The Pied Piper of Hamelin.
