Schmetterlinge - Proletenpassion

"Die Schmetterlinge" ("The Butterflies" in English) were an Austrian political-folk-band. They started as a folk ensemble but later evolved into a complex theatrical progressive band, with "Sparifankal" and "Floh De Cologne" touches, moving onto progressive rock-opera.
.
"Die Proletenpassion" ("Worker´s Passion) is their most important work. Written by the poet and dramatist Heinz Rudolf Unger, it was first performed in 1976.
.
It's the sung and spoken history of the working class through the centuries. Peasants' Wars, the French revolution etc. are represented of the "Schmetteringe" from the view of the working class. Historical original texts and texts by the band are performed with music of the respective centuries. The concept album offers a singular historical-musical outline of the European history of the working class and their struggle against exploitation and oppression. This piece of music is encouraging, critical, true, informative, and unfortunately something you will never learn in school.
