Discover Alexander von Zemlinsky's brilliant fable inspired by a Chinese drama of the 13th century, onstage at the Opéra de Lyon.
In this unique opera, the last the composer completed, Zemlinsky freely blends the influence of jazz music and the oriental stylization to post-romantic classical music in a work with a strong political message about justice, love and destiny.
