Opera by Franz Schreker
Franz Schreker’s large-scale opera, Die Gezeichneten (The Branded), is one of the early 20th century’s most scandalous works. The conductor Vladimir Jurowski will be giving his début at Zurich Opera House, and the acclaimed director Barrie Kosky will be presenting his interpretation of this extraordinary score. Catherine Naglestad can be heard in the principle female role of Carlotta, an artist and painter of souls who has a weak heart. The tenor John Daszak, an experienced performer of Schreker, will be performing the role of the misshapen Alviano Salvago.
