Introduction

The burden of tradition was thrown off when two of the most original thinkers in 20th-century art collaborated on an opera – against all expectations. Morton Feldman did not want his music to be accompanied by text, while Samuel Beckett did not want his text to be accompanied by music. The result was one of the strangest and most magical works in opera history: Neither, an anti-opera that demands a soprano who can take her singing to the limit. Anu Komsi is just this kind.
