Schlachthof 5 based on the novel by Kurt Vonnegut
In the cellars of Schlachthof 5, Kurt Vonnegut survives the heavy bombing raids of 13 February 1945; his novel, published in 1969, becomes a cult book. In September 2020, the world premiere of the music theatre piece “Schlachthof 5” directed by Maxim Didenko took place at HELLERAU, which will now be performed as a concert version.
