In this opera, the lambs/women participate in the narrative together with the brothers. From the second scene - the arias of Cain's lamb (Israel 2002) and Abel's lamb (Vienna 2005). The staging in Israel veered towards the mystic and pictorial whereas in Vienna the psychological, philosophic approach was favored.
