For his music-theatrical concept, the internationally acclaimed theatre and film director Kornél Mundruczó chose Hans Zender’s composed interpretation for a small orchestra based on Franz Schubert’s famous Winterreise song cycle. Mundruczó’s film footage shows refugees travelling through Hungary in silent scenes – and he gives them a voice on stage: in the form of vocals by the young Hungarian singer and actor János Szemenyei.
