This autumn English Touring Opera will tour Mozart’s The Seraglio and Kurt Weill’s The Silver Lake – A Winter’s Tale (Der Silbersee). Two plays-with-music (singspiel), The Seraglio is a light comedy with emotional truth, and The Silver Lake – A Winter’s Tale (Der Silbersee) is a poignant story with a sharp edge of satire.
The Silver Lake – A Winter’s Tale (Der Silbersee), Kurt Weill’s collaboration with the playwright Georg Kaiser, was closed down by the Nazi authorities in 1933 and it was not performed for many years. For many, it is his masterpiece.
This is a piece about those who are left behind – a poor man driven to steal a pineapple, a poor relation who is passed from house to house, a policeman with principles, and the starving people who at the very beginning of the show are busy burying Hunger itself.
The Silver Lake – A Winter’s Tale (Der Silbersee) promises to be a compelling, poetic night in the theatre, graced with astonishing music.
Book tickets for both Seraglio and The Silver Lake for a special price of £49.
