Karl and Franz are brothers. Franz, the younger one, hates Karl. He desires the inheritance that belongs to the firstborn, the love of the Father, who forgives everything. Two brothers, a problem. Nicolas Stemann, who stages Schiller’s “Räuber” as a men’s pack and sends a four-part Bruderhydra to the piste, celebrating the text as an orchestral linguistic work, shows that Karl and Franz are really two sides of the same coin. This works so elegantly that from Schiller’s brother couple a single Franzkarl and the “robbers” becomes a speech art work.
