About the Event

Discover Battistelli's new work 'Il Teorema di Pasolini' in premiered at the Deutsche Oper Berlin.

With his 1968 film 'Teorema,' which was also published in novel form, Pier Paolo Pasolini formulated a radical reckoning with the bourgeoisie: the upper‐middle‐class family at the center of the work is held together only by conventions, and the erotic seductive power of a stranger alone is enough to cause this ossified system to break apart. Thus, 'Teorema' is at the same time the most impressive realization of Pasolini's basic thesis that sexual liberation of the individual and the transformation of society are interconnected — even if the sexual 'awakening experiences' set off different reactions in the members of the family.
