Profile

Erich Wolfgang Korngold was just 23 when he composed Die tote Stadt, German for The Dead City, a sweeping work of that explores the hallucinatory experience of memory and the pain of lost love in a society ravaged by the first World War. It's generally considered a forgotten gem from the 20th century, though its beauty has prompted favorable comparisons to the orchestrations of the Italian master Puccini and fellow German Richard Strauss. All of this makes us feel sort of generally down in the dumps about our own accomplishments, but we'll make every attempt to enjoy the Dallas Opera's production anyway.
