Das Wunder der Heliane
Premiere: 28. 1. 2017
The leading Korngold researcher Brendan G. Carroll declares "The Miracle of Heliane" to be "arguably his greatest work.” Korngold‘s music is characterised by magical expressionistic colours and his melodies by
their lyrical, Viennese quality. Monumental orchestral sounds accompany the symbolic story of the beautiful Heliane. She rejects her husband, the brutal ruler, and falls in love with the young stranger who ultimately
pays with his life.
