Ann Allen is a classically trained musician who has been fusing music and image for many years in a series of scenic concerts and semi-staged operas.
She has also put on three fully staged projects:
cassablanca inspired baroque-jazz DIDO AND AENEAS
based on Bach's Christmas Oratorio
inspired by the myth of Orpheus and Euridice
mixing Monteverdi, Gluck, rock songs and jazz standards
Many of the projects have come out of her fusion festival
NOX ILLUMINATA and the concert series ILLMINATIONEN
at the Burghof Lörrach.
Many of these projects would not have been possible without the help and support of the following people:
Helmut Brügel, Joachim Schlömmer, Markus Muffler
Mark Searle, Isabelle Born, Eveline Senn, Angelika Schopper, Kim Bischofberger
Jakob Pilgram, Ulrike Hofbauer, Michelangelo Rinaldi, Clara Gervais, Benjamin Brodbeck, Tamar Halperin, Thill Mantero, Kendra Walsh and the many other musicians and performers I have had the pleasure of working with..
