Die tote Stadt - Linz (new production)

Post by brendan g carroll » Thu Apr 21, 2022 6:18 pm

The Landestheater in Linz announced its new season yesterday and it will open with Die tote Stadt on September 24!

The press announcement states:

" Erich Wolfgang Korngold’s late-Romantic masterpiece “Die tote Stadt” (from September 24) will kick off (the season). Bruckner Orchestra Chief Conductor Markus Poschner is allowed to conduct the work for the first time."

Allowed? Is Korngold still a guilty pleasure then? Poschner said at the press conference that he is delighted 'to be able to conduct this grandiose masterpiece at last"!

Here's a link to the season press release in English:

No cast as yet. I believe this will be the first time DTS has been staged in Linz and the first new Austrian production since Willy Decker unveiled his version in Salzburg 15 or more years ago.

Best wishes
