Alma Mahler-Werfel was the last femme fatale, a significant person
of the fin-de-siécle, a fascinating woman, allied, married and
of course muse to some of the major artists of the 20th century. Married
to composer Gustav
Mahler, architect Walter
Gropius, and writer Franz
Werfel, passionately in love with painter Oskar
Kokoschka and muse to Gustav
Klimt. Alma was one of the most remarkable women of her era.
The theatrical spectacle Alma is a journey through Alma
Mahlers life, staged as a polydrama,
with various plot elements running in parallel. It is more than a theater
play, it is an act of watching lives being lived. Its theater
that smells of life itself! It is one of the most successful and most
unusual theater performances ever to take place in Europe.
