Mark Andre: Wunderzaichen

Matthias Klink, André Jung, Claudia Barainsky, Kora Pavelic, Maria Theresa Ullrich

The originating process of the opera “WUNDERZAICHEN”
(miraculous sign) by Mark Andre
In 2008 Mark Andre was assigned by the Staatsoper Stuttgart to write an opera, to be directed by Jossi Wieler and Sergio Morabito. The main character of the opera, written by Mark Andre over the course of 7 years, is Johannes Reuchlin, a 15th-century Christian scholar of the Jewish Kabbala. Underlying shimmers through a subject that had fascinated the composer since he was a little child: the disappearance of Jesus of Nazareth.

The film follows Mark Andre during his journey to Israel in 2011, during the sound research in the Experimentalstudio of the SWR in Freiburg in 2013 and during the final rehearsal in the Staatsoper Stuttgart in spring 2014.
