Das Wunder der Heliane: Deutsche Oper Berlin

About the Event

Korngold called his opera a 'masterpiece' that combines every aspect of musical theater in a stunning score played by the orchestra through expressive polytonal harmonies.

After an enthusiastic reception at its premiere, Korngold's work vanished from the opera repertory after the Nazis took power. Director Christof Loy and conductor Marc Albrecht bring this fantastic piece back to the stage at the Deutsche Oper Berlin.
