The dissertation project consists of two equally-weighted components: firstly, the creation of the original, purpose-written chamber opera I.th.Ak.A., as premiered in 2018 by the Hamburg State Opera and as represented in the dissertation document by a study score, and secondly, a textual document outlining the essential compositional approach for the opera (‘cross-genre composition’) in aesthetic and technical detail, as well as positioning the project as one of artistic research.
