D' Albert: Tiefland

2006 NR

Franz Welser-Most conducts the Zurich Opera House orchestra and chorus in this shockingly modern interpretation of Eugen D'Albert's seventh opera, "Tiefland," with minimalist staging by Matthias Hartmann. Matthias Goerne sings the role of the wealthy landowner Sebastiano, an unscrupulous man who plots to marry off his mistress (Petra Maria Schnitzer) to a lowly shepherd (Peter Seiffert) so he can marry another and keep his lover on the side.
