Alexander Zemlinsky based The Dwarf (Der Zwerg) on Oscar Wilde’s one-act tragedy “The Birthday of the Infanta.” Viktor Ullmann’s The Broken Jug (Der zerbrochene Krug) is taken from a comedy by the Romantic German poet Heinrich von Kleist. Vivid imagery, supercharged emotions, and rich late-Romantic orchestral textures characterize these operas. There are beguiling echoes of Mahler, Strauss and Wagner, but the overall effect is one of exciting musical discovery.
Conducted by Music Director James Conlon
Directed by Darko Tresnjak
Recovered Voices is a company premiere. The Broken Jug is also a U.S. premiere.
Sung in German with English supertitles.
There will be a pre-performance lecture one hour prior to each performance. Music Director James Conlon will be interviewed by Michael Hackett.
