Catherine Malfitano stages Zemlinsky

Reading time: 1 min. New Production Alexander Zemlinsky

Alexander Zemlinsky’s one act A Florentine Tragedy – based on Oscar Wilde’s unfinished story of a dramatic love triangle – will be presented by the Canadian Opera Company from 26 April–25 May this year.

Two members of the production team have aroused international interest: the American opera star Catherine Malfitano is directing and Sir Andrew Davis conducts. The three lead roles are sung by Alan Held (Simone), Gun-Brit Barkmin (Bianca) and Michael König (Guido Bardi).

A Florentine Tragedy will be performed as a double bill with Puccini’s Gianni Schicchi.[nbsp]
