In many of his works, the pan-religious composer Karlheinz Stockhausen chose the everlasting struggle between good and evil as his central theme. This applies to his monumental opera cycle »Licht«, whose total running time exceeds even that of Wagner’s »Ring« at 29 hours, and which has never been performed in its entirety. In seven sections named after the days of the week, Stockhausen uses the three archetypal figures of Eve, St Michael and Lucifer to tell the story of human existence and humanity’s relationship with the divine. Peter Eötvös, this year’s Artist in Residence at the Elbphilharmonie, conducts a semi-staged performance of the third act of »Donnerstag« with a team of well-known Stockhausen specialists, the EuropaChorAkademie and the orchestra of the Musikhochschule in Hamburg.
