Work introduction

Even when he was young, Ernst Krenek was a highly political person who displayed an astonishing maturity in his way of thinking and also in his works. Three years after Hitler’s unsuccessful putsch in Munich and two years after Mussolini gained a two-thirds majority in the Italian parliament, Krenek composed a one-act opera for which he wrote his own libretto that urgently highlights the dangers of fascism. Der Diktator is a tragic opera that predicted the tragedy of National Socialist dictatorship.
