Hibiki is a Japanese whisky. Whisky connoisseurs appreciate its 17 and 21-year-old vintages, as well as the scarcely available 30-year-old one. There is also a Hibiki, Japanese harmony no age statement version. The very word Hibiki means “echo” or “resonance” in Japanese. Sound, taste, smell, touch, space – everything has its harmony, echoes and resonances. Let us get entangled by them...
The libretto is about tasting. It uses different Czech proverbs, which are in free connection to the tasting as: to buy a pig in a poke, measure twice and cut once, no pain, no gain etc. These proverbs are deformed in a way, that they sound similar, but have a different meaning.
