Woman at Point Zero - LOD Muziektheater © Aida Elkashef i
Woman at Point Zero is a new opera based on the classic 1975 novel by the Egyptian writer Nawal El Sadaawi. From this universal story of exploitation, erasure and the search for freedom, composer Bushra El-Turk, director Laila Soliman, writer Stacy Hardy and filmmaker Aida Elkashef create a new multimedia production that weaves together diverse creative visions and challenges conventions. Opera as a powerful voice for a new wave of feminism without borders.
"Woman at point Zero was chosen by the Jury of the FEDORA - GENERALI Prize for Opera 2020, partly because of its compelling story, partly because it was a truly international partnership, but perhaps most of all because it was a combination of composer, librettist, director and filmmaker of emerging talent, which we want to bring to the world."
Nicholas Payne, Director of Opera Europa and Chair of the FEDORA - GENERALI Prize for Opera Jury 2020
