The Dark Mirror: Zender's Winterreise Tickets

Loss of love is just the beginning of Schubert’s haunting song cycle, reinterpreted with Hans Zender’s startling orchestration to evoke the abrasive cabaret style of post-Weimar Germany, and adapted for the stage in this theatrical production.

Overview

Plunged into a stark wintry landscape, a wanderer embarks on an intensely dramatic journey, his reflections on the meaning of life alternating between young, male angst and well-worn nostalgia, between sardonic humour and depressive longing.

‘The most imaginative director of opera working in Britain today’ (Observer), Netia Jones approaches her multimedia work like a painting, artistically integrating film, video, projections and traditional design into live music performances. Collaborating with tenor Ian Bostridge – a world-leading performer of Winterreise – and Britten Sinfonia, she uses multilayered imagery to realise a monochrome world of foreboding shadow and glittering light.

Sung in German with English surtitles
