Composed and first performed towards the end of the First World War, the demanding work with its huge orchestral and casting requirements enjoyed performances on many important stages. Forced into early retirement following the Nazis’ seizure of power, Schreker died prematurely and the work was forgotten.

The impressive opera opened the 2005 Salzburg Festival and was deservedly hailed “rediscovery of the year” by the New York Times.

Featuring more than 30 soloists, along with the Concert Association of the Vienna State Opera Chorus and the Deutsches Symphonie-Orchester Berlin under the baton of Kent Nagano.

Gramophone Magazine

Awards 2006

“…the love/lust triangle on which it centres… is magnificently realised with Nikolaus Lehnhoff ensuring that scenery-chewing melodrama doesn't get in the way of musical values.”
