What happens when one of Indonesia’s most admired love stories is combined with music? See it yourself at Opera Ainun, an opera that tells the story of Former President B. J. Habibie and his wife Hasri Ainun Besari. This opera is the first of its kind in Indonesia and will be performed from September 15 to 16, 2018 in Teater Jakarta, Taman Ismail Marzuki. In this 3-act opera, you will follow Ainun’s journey, a brilliant young doctor with big dreams who fell in love with her childhood friend. Ainun would later become the woman behind Habibie’s success as an aerospace engineer and the third president of Indonesia. There will be no dialogue in this show, but rest assured that you can understand every scene thanks to Titien Wattimena’s script and Purwacaraka’s music specially created for this opera.
