Albert Lortzing (1801-1851): Undine / Annika Gerhards, Lydia Rathkolb, Carlos Osuna, James Kryshak, Il Hong, Tae-Joong Yang. Vienna State Opera, Wildner [DVD]

Notes & Reviews:

The tale of a beautiful young water nymph in human form and her love for an unfaithful knight or prince is a common theme in opera and ballet. Many of these musical settings are based on the 1811 novella Undine by Friedrich Baron de la Motte-Fouqué, including this opera by Albert Lortzing. With regard to instrumentation, thematic design and text setting, Lortzing's Undine was a milestone in the development of German Romantic opera. Directed by Alexander Medem, this video presents a one-act version of the opera arranged and adapted by Tristan Schulze for children that is suitable for the whole family.
