Re: 2 DVDs of "die tote Stadt" you may not know of.

Peter thankfully drew our attention to two DVDs of 'Die tote Stadt' one and a half years ago. I have just found the announcement of 'jpc' that they will issue a (proper) DVP of the legendary Götz-Friedrich-production in Berlin from 1983 (Deutsche Oper) on 21 September this year. Hopefully the quali...

Re: Die tote Stadt / Violanta

Excellent news for all Korngold fans and his 'tote Stadt' in particular. I have just read (Schott-musik.de) that apart from the production in Lübeck next spring (5 April), which is known to the board users already, there will be additional productions of this opera in Innsbruck (9 February 2013) an...

Re: Die tote Stadt / Violanta

Dear Peter, what a relief! It does not only happen to me that different perfomances are mixed up with each other. True, the opera house in Nancy and its location at the famous square are almost unique. The Gelsenkirchen opera house contrasts with it considerably, doesn't it? What irritated me with t...

Re: Die tote Stadt / Violanta

Dear Peter, thank you for your prompt reply. What I forgot to mention in my last post was the fact that I completely agree with you as regards the Decker production of the 'tote Stadt'. It is really incredible that it made its tour around the world with the bald-headed Marie/Marietta; and I think it...

Re: Die tote Stadt / Violanta

Dear Peter, yes, 48 performances! And in the course of time this has become some sort of sport for me. Actually, I usually make fun of myself when mentioning this 'obsession'. But, I presume, there are worse hobbies than this. As for your question about my most memorable productions, here they are: ...

Re: Die tote Stadt / Violanta

Dear Scott, dear Peter, I am a newly registered member of this forum and am very fascinated by your discussion. All the more so since I saw (and heard) the two perfomances in question in Lübeck (Polykrates) and in Bremerhaven (Violanta) - the latter even twice, 2/6 and 16/6. I fully agree with the ...
