Betrothal in a Dream by Hans Krása

Posted by Johannes Feigl on 12 December 2014

“It is deeply shocking that the musical decisions of the Third Reich should continue to influence the programming of today’s cultural institutions. But what other explanation is there for the relative obscurity of Verlobung im Traum?” (Financial Times, Shirley Apthorp, 26.10.2014)

On the occasion of the 70th anniversary of the murder of Hans Krása in Auschwitz, the Badisches Staatstheater Karlsruhe hosted a new production of the long-thought lost opera Verlobung im Traum [Betrothal in a Dream]. Almost two months after its première, Ingo Kerkhof’s production now returns for a second season in Karlsruhe.

Find the full programme on the website of the Badisches Staatstheater.
