Wolfgang Fortner (1907-1987): Blood Wedding / Wuppertal Symphony, Griffiths [DVD]

Album Summary

>Fortner, Wolfgang : Blood Wedding, opera
Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

The opera Bluthochzeit (Bloodwedding) by Wolfgang Fortner is based upon the lyric tragedy of the same name by Federico García Lorca. The premonition of a crime yet to be committed pervades the story from the very beginning. Premiered in Cologne in 1957, Bluthochzeit first became one of the most successful operas in the post-war era. However, today the opera is seldom performed. This DVD features an acclaimed new production staged by Christian von Götz for the Wuppertal Theater in January 2013.
