Estonian composer Jüri Reinvere’s fourth opera „The Shadow” („Der Schatten“) will come on stage of Osnabrück Theatre in June 2021. The two-act opera is based on Hans Christian Andersen’s fair-tale of the same name which describes the loss of identity and self-searching in the superficial and inhuman world. As for his previous operas, the libretto is written by Reinvere himself. The director of the Städtische Bühnen Osnabrück, Ralf Waldschmidt, describes Jüri Reinvere as one of the most important and versatile composers of his generation whose works are always dealing with basic questions of human existence always.
