Directing Schoenberg's "Pierrot Lunaire" 

Pierrot Lunaire, Op. 2
1 ("Moonstruck Pierrot" or "Pierrot in the Moonlight") is a landmark in modern music, a melodrama by Arnold Schoenberg. It consists of 21 poems set to atonal music. The expressionistic text of the piece echoes German cabaret and is performed using Sprechgesang - an otherworldly style of dramatic vocalization intermediate between speech and song. A moonstruck production of "Pierrot Lunaire" opens 31 of March 2018 with soprano Ksenia Kuchukova in the title role. Date of the premiere also happens to mark the second Full Moon in March; a rare occurrence termed "the blue moon".
