Lera Auerbach's new choral opera "The Blind" will receive its world premiere on 13 October 2011 at the Berlin Konzerthaus as a production of the Berlin Chamber Opera. This work focuses completely on the human voice (scoring: 12 a capella singers). The Vocal Consort Berlin will be singing and acting under the musical direction of Philip Mayers with Cornelia Heger directing.
