NOTES ON THE PERFORMANCE
Defined as “a genius” by Mahler at a very young age and taught by Zemlinsky, Erich Korngold’s early works were directed by Bruno Walter. Forced to flee Europe by the Nazi persecution of the Jews, Korngold settled in Hollywood, where – thanks to his partnership with Max Reinhardt –, he embarked on a career as a composer of soundtracks that would win him two Oscars. Based on the novel Bruges la Morte by Georges Rodenbach, Die Tote Stadt (“The Dead City”) is the disturbing masterpiece of a composer who had already reached the height of his career by the age of twenty-three, and arrives at La Scala for the first time in an eagerly awaited production directed by Graham Vick, with Alan Gilbert on the podium.
