If you go rarely to the opera, this will be a challenging work. Even for a fan like me, the music takes some patience, but it was an event worth attending and well sung.

Quotes & Highlights
“…vacillates between melodies of Mediterranean grace and textures of otherworldly complexity…One scene melts into another with cinematic ease.” —The New Yorker
“affecting and sympathetic” —The New York Times (on Robert Brubaker in the role of Alviano in the Salzburg Festival performance of Die Gezeichneten)
An unlikely love triangle plays out amidst a group of decadent nobles, who are marked by lust, branded by depravity and stigmatized for their own unspeakable acts. The mystery of the paradise garden island, with its secret love grotto, climaxes in a shocking revelation. This voluptuously evocative work springs to vivid life under the baton of James Conlon and stage direction of the internationally celebrated Ian Judge. Anja Kampe, (Fidelio, Il Tabarro and Die Walküre) takes the part of the work’s main love interest, Carlotta. Robert Brubaker makes his LA Opera debut as the tortured Alviano. Returning LA Opera favorites are James Johnson (The Dwarf and The Birds), and Martin Gantner (Tannhäuser).
