Berlioz: The Troyans

Operatic concert

© Swedisch Radio

The “Trojans” by Hector Berlioz is amongst the greatest works written for the opera stage, with requirements that could be compared to those of Wagner’s “Ring of the Nibelung”, albeit not quite as long! Here, in a way, the French composer redevelops the entire operatic form. He begins with happiness, creates seemingly endless melodies and fills the work with music so rich with ideas it shatters all normal dimensions. The plight of Troy and the associated rise of Rome fascinated the composer his entire life and the work enjoys great success on numerous international opera stages. In the Festspielhaus you will experience the opera in concert form.

In French with German and English surtitles.

Sponsored by Klaus und Kirsten Mangold

The end of performance: 8.45 p.m.
