Euryanthe was first heard in Vienna in 1823, following the great success of Der Freischütz two years before. Weber’s music is more adventurous than in the earlier work, with no spoken dialogue. Together the two operas had a major influence on the developing German romanticism of Marschner, Schumann, Liszt and Wagner; his orchestration was much admired by Berlioz.

While the overture is familiar in the concert hall, the complete work is rarely heard today: its clumsy plot (of knights, ghosts, revenge and redemption) has distracted attention from its musical qualities, which show Weber at the summit of his achievement.

Concert performance sung in German with English surtitles.

6pm: Pre-concert Talk for ticket holders.

Concert Duration:
approx. 3 hours including interval
