Wagner’s second opera, Das Liebesverbot (The Ban on Love), was written in 1836 to a libretto based on Shakespeare’s Measure for Measure and reflects contemporary fashion and taste for French and Italian operatic styles. One of Wagner’s two grand comic operas, the other being Die Meistersinger, this is a rare opportunity to reassess what in many ways remains his most significant early work and non-German opera with its action transferred from Vienna to Palermo. Despite hints of Mozart, Beethoven and Weber, Wagner’s later music is discernible, albeit in embryonic form.

Concert performance in German with English surtitles.

5.15pm: Pre-opera talk by Christopher Fifield.

Concert Duration:
