ETO – The Silver Lake – A Winter’s Tale

  • Show Information

This autumn English Touring Opera will tour Mozart’s The Seraglio and Kurt Weill’s The Silver Lake – A Winter’s Tale (Der Silbersee). Two ‘plays with music’ (singspiel), The Seraglio is a light comedy with emotional truth, and The Silver Lake – A Winter’s Tale (Der Silbersee) is a poignant story with a sharp edge of satire.

The Silver Lake – A Winter’s Tale (Der Silbersee) is, for many, Kurt Weill’s masterpiece. 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.
