In 1996, Heiner Goebbels composed Surrogate Cities, one of his most virtuoso operas. The theme of this opera is an attempt at different inroads to the city: narrating something about cities, exposing oneself to cities, keeping a close eye on cities. City maquette is a show which involves amateurs who come from various communities of each city where it is performed. More than 60 people of all generation share the stage and their fantastic imagination about the city.
