Hans Werner Henze: Der Junge Lord

1968 NR

A town is tricked into thinking a disguised monkey is actually a young lord in this comic operatic gem from renowned German composer Hans Werner Henze, who wrote the score to a libretto by author Ingeborg Bachmann. This sterling 1968 production features Edith Mathis, in an early career-shaping role, along with Donald Grobe, Barry McDaniel, Loren Driscoll and the Chorus and Orchestra of the Deutsche Oper Berlin.
