Biography


English     Deutsch     Français    


Olga Neuwirth (b. 1968) gained international recognition at the age of 22 for two mini-operas based on works of Nobel Prize winner Elfriede Jelinek. Since then, she’s written several music theatre pieces including her first [full-length?] dramatic work, Bählamms Fest (also based on one of Jelinek’s works), The Outcast, American Lulu, and Hommage á Klaus Nomi. In 2015, Vienna Philharmonic premiered her orchestral work Masaot / Clocks without Hands, which then went on to be performed at Carnegie Hall in 2016 under the baton of Valerij Gergiev. Also in 2016, she was composer-in-residence at the Lucerne Festival. She is currently working on a new opera for the Vienna Staatsoper which will be premiered in 2019.

Compositions before 2000 and after 2009 are published with Ricordi.
