His new opera WIR based on the first dystopia novel WE by Evgeniy Zamyatin had its premiere in Regensburg, Germany. The staging was a great success both with audience and media. The novel by the Soviet author Evgeniy Zamyatin, written in 1920, initially fell victim to censorship in his homeland. Like Aldous Huxley's BRAVE NEW WORLD or George Orwell's 1984, Zamyatin's dystopian vision of the future is now considered a classic of science fiction literature. De-individualization, oppression, surveillance and stagnation of life - these are the characteristics of the world depicted in WIR (WE). The individual counts for nothing here, only the “we” counts.In his musical farce WIR, Anton Lubchenko emphasizes the struggle for humanity in a totalitarian structure that has degenerated into the grotesque. Here he plays with different styles, which he breaks again and again. In this way he creates an ironic musical context to the literary dystopia.
