Wiener Staatsoper

Les Troyens

Direction: David McVicar
Stage Design: Es Devlin, Will Harding
Costumes: Moritz Junge

Premiere: 14. 10. 2018

Virgil’s Aeneid was one of the main sources of inspiration for the French composer
Hector Berlioz. Based on this epic poem, he created a work that – as the title indicates –
places the people at the centre of plot. Written between 1856 and 1858, this monumental
opera exceeded all the limits during the composer’s lifetime. The work was intended
to be free of all commercial and social constraints – as a kind of festival work, as it were.
And the requirements of Les Troyens are still challenging even to this day. After almost
40 years, the opera house on the Ring is once again preparing to face this challenge.
