General Information


New production, in coproduction with Salzburg Festival

An ultra-modern theatrical score from the Eighteenth century, which became a formidable monument to Twentieth-century musical modernism. It is an opera that lives and breathes: in fifty years Die Soldaten has had several productions since its world premiere in 1965. The legendary score by Jakob Lenz (1751-92), set in a pre-Revolution France traumatized by war, brings together the illusions of social redemption and the accusation of male irresponsibility, with the usual debt of blood and suffering to be paid by everyone, women and men alike. The genial eclecticism of B. A. Zimmermann (1918-70) merges modernist complexity, recitatives, jazz and electronica, to describe through the medium of music that teems with great emotive strength the mental confusion of the characters and the accumulation of the various catastrophic parallel stories. The impressive staging by Alvis Hermanis, which delighted audiences in Salzburg in the co-production with La Scala, has great impact for its imagery, symbolism and human degradation. The return of Laura Aikin and Gabriela Beňačková in a dream cast.
