The invincible power of LOVE
The Promise is the story of Ava who becomes separated from her husband, Teo, in a concentration camp. Determined to be reunited with her husband after the war, she travels through the ruins of a traumatised Europe in search of him. We accompany her on a journey that sways between dream and reality, hope and despair.
This story about the invincible power of love is brought to us seventy-six years after the liberation of Auschwitz. “We find ourselves in a time outside time, as the victims of war take their first uncertain steps towards reclaiming their humanity”, says librettist Susanne Marko, who was inspired by her own family history. The work was created for the Royal Swedish Opera in collaboration with the composer Mats Larsson Gothe. It will premiere on January 27, International Holocaust Remembrance Day, when we pay tribute to the victims and remind ourselves to never allow evil to take hold in society.
