Fever Ray Scores Hour of the Wolf Stage Production

Karin Dreijer Andersson, best known as Fever Ray and as one half of The Knife, has been working on music for a new production of Ingmar Bergman’s Hour Of The Wolf. This marks another notch in KDA's stage belt as she and brother Olof scored last year's Charles Darwin opera, Tomorrow, In a Year.

Bergman began writing Hour Of The Wolf in 1964 and filmed it in 1968, with Max Von Sydow and Liv Ullmann starring. A psychological horror movie of sorts, it tells the story of of an artist haunted by unsettling visions and his attempts to explain his plight to his wife. Developed from a script with the working title of The Cannibals, it is regarded as one of Bergman’s most personal movies, and the fact that the filmmaker suffered a nervous breakdown during its writing lends it a certain extra charge.

 

The premiere of the new stage adaptation has been set for March 12 at the Kungliga Dramatiska Teatern in Stockholm (much like everything rad that Karin and/or The Knife do, it's sadly not something accessible in the States). Andersson became involved in the production through her visual collaborator Andrea Nilsson, who is acting as set designer. More information and tickets here. (via Fact)

That's great that the premiere of the new stage adaptation has been set for March 12 at the Kungliga Dramatiska Teatern in Stockholm.

Hope to have my time and try to sneak out to office and watch it all the way!
