Friday, February 7: Die Tote Stadt (The Dead City) by Erich Wolfgang Korngold

  • Suppressed by the Nazis as "decadent", this wonderfully inspired score has Straussian ebb and flow, volcanic eruptions, tender, touching moments, unusual, colorful orchestral effects, not to mention unforgettable melodies. Korngold was only 23 when Die Tote Stadt (The Dead City) was first staged. The opera opens in the rational world, but quickly dissolves into a dark dreamscape of hallucination. This psychological drama mirrors love and memory, death and reality, ending with a beautiful and brave spiritual release.
