Street. Hildegard von Bingen (1098-1179) was the most versatile nun in the West. Healer, naturalist, mystic, advisor to popes and kings, painter, poet and composer was honored as a saint during her lifetime.
The play tells of Hildegard’s life as a spirited president, her struggle for equal rights, reports on her crushing visions, artwork, and visions in the world of God, and describes the story of her great love for Richards von Stad, who nearly broke her. Hildegard’s hymns, brought to life by the singing of the actresses, are closely related to the monologue, making Hildegard’s great view of the world and the world of ideas audible and tangible.
“The moving performance made me cry several times. An important play that reminds of the power of a woman who was far ahead of her time.” Through differentiated performance and singing, the actress and singer succeeded in breathing life into the character of the theater Hildegard and transporting the audience to the spiritual world of the 12th century.
