Conductor: Cornelius Meister
Director Sven-Eric Bechtolf

Based on E.T.A. Hoffmann's tale Das Fräulein von Scuderi, Paul Hindemith and his librettist Ferdinand Lion created the three-act opera Cardillac. In the person of the title character, a goldsmith, who is possessed by his jewelry and can’t separate himself from it and kills to protect it, as well as the tensions between the artist and the work and between the outer and inner society and a lonely personality are all discussed in this opera.
