Closed down by the Nazi authorities in 1933 and not performed for many years, this is a piece about those who are left behind.
Conducted by James Holmes, and directed by ETO’s James Conway, The Silver Lake – A Winter’s Tale (Der Silbersee) promises to be a compelling night in the theatre, with astonishing music.
Sung in German with narration in English. With English surtitles.
It’s a very strange mixture of gritty realism and convoluted fantasy. Conway’s staging makes it apparent why it hasn’t been frequently revived
