ERICH WOLFGANG KORNGOLD

Die tote Stadt

A dangerous obsession with the past threatens to become deadly, as Paul struggles with unsettling dreams in this thrilling opera noir by one of history’s most remarkable composer-prodigies.

Acclaimed conductor Justin Brown and director Carmen Jakobi lead a new production of this rarely performed work.

Korngold’s Die tote Stadt will involve the Longborough Youth Chorus, following their successful debut in The Cunning Little Vixen during the 2021 season.

Please note that this production contains adult themes.
