Breathe - Umphefumlo Wins the Berlinale Giuseppe Becce Prize for Music

The Breathe-Umphefumlo team

Once again the Isango Ensemble were winners at this year's Berlinale picking up the Giuseppi Becce prize for Music. We awarded Breathe-Umphefumlo because of the incisive and intelligent way in which it talks about the great social health problem of tuberculosis.

The director engages his contemporary audience back to a time when tuberculosis was raging in Europe and makes clear in this way that diseases are not a problem only in the place where they break out, but are also a burden for the whole world.

- The protagonists are not rich and sick because of poverty - in this version the company has been faithful to the music and the libretto, they have made it very current, and they have brought a truth to the music to the truth of the music and the proper intonation that brings the whoile opera back to life.
