Premiere in Coburg: Roland Kluttig conducts English operas "Dido and Aeneas" and "Riders to the sea"

On June 18, 2016, General Music Director Roland Kluttig effortlessly bridges the ages at the Landestheater Coburg: Henry Purcell’s baroque opera “Dido and Aeneas” and the tragic one-act play “Riders to the sea” by Ralph Vaughan Williams are presented in a double evening.

Reconciling the two English works will be a musical challenge and will be performed on a German stage for the first time in this combination.


How the selection came about and whether the required “Sea Machine” could be obtained is reported by Roland Kluttig in the BR Klassik preliminary report. There are further performances on June 21st, 24th, 30th and July 3rd and 6th.
