Wiener Staatsoper

Dantons Tod

Direction: Josef Ernst Köpplinger

Premiere: 24. 3. 2018

For many decades, no less than four operas (including two world premières) and
five ballets (including two world premières) by Gottfried von Einem belonged to the
repertoire at the Wiener Staatsoper. To mark the occasion of the 100th anniversary
of the composer’s birth, the work that catapulted him to international fame at the
Salzburg Festival in 1947 returns to the opera house on the Ring: Dantons Tod. Von
Einem had brilliantly recreated Büchner’s Revolution tragedy for music theatre and,
following the postulate of his teacher Boris Blacher, had interwoven the musical and
the theatrical in such a way that the dramatic episodes are optimally communicated
in music to the audience.
