Performers Conductor Ensembles Composers

Notes & Reviews:

The first fully-staged productions of the LA Opera House groundbreaking 'Recovered Voices' project, highlighting the works of composers affected by the Holocaust. A double bill of one-act operas: Viktor Ullmann's 'Der zerbrochene Krug', taken from a comedy by the Romantic German poet Heinrich von Kleist, and Alexander Zemlinsky's 'Der Zwerg', based on Oscar Wilde's powerful tragedy 'The Birthday of the Infanta'. The music of Alexander Zemlinsky and Viktor Ullmann remained buried for decades in the wake of the destruction wrought by the policies of the Nazi regime. Dozens of composers and thousands of compositions are still largely unknown to musicians and lovers of classical music and opera.
