Simon Stone away, be aware of the symbolist gloom of the template

The opulent genius of the youth's throw from Erich Wolfgang Korngold (1897-1957) to Georges Roden Bach's novel "Bruges-la-Morte", there was at least as planned. The Premiere provoked unanimous cheering, and all five follow-up ideas this year, the words "out of stock specied".

1xbet xmlns="" class="article even"> Jonas Kaufmann sings consistently in top form

Jonas Kaufmann in the murderous Tenor role of the grieving Paul is almost consistently in top form! Marlis Petersen alternates effortlessly between the vibrant Marietta and the reminder Marie pale. She plays excessively, and impresses with its versatility as well as with their heady heights.

Simon Stone with his production aware of the icon in the gloom of a Bruges-la-Morte-atmosphere and to the emergence time of widespread mourning for the countless war dead of the universe. He asks for the Exemplary in an individual suffering, to the dangers of unmastered area grief today.

Paul's mistress, Marie, is obviously died of cancer, Paul through the lives and can't handle it. The fascinating psycho-gram of the lonely man into a life cul-de-SAC unfolds in a an empty ground-floor apartment. Here he has set up his Church to the memory; with countless photos and Maries a blond wig as a sanctuary.

So far, after all, Paul from his grief resolves itself, so far as the Interpretation of his story delivers at the end of the Protagonist himself. Then again, his beguiling "happiness to me has remained" as a farewell greeting in the best case, taken spectators. If you want to take the bottle of beer, he then leaves the room as a sign of his return to normality.
