Marc Geelhoed
Time Out Chicago, October 2006

For the more adventurous, there’s Franz Schreker’s 1918 opera Die Gezeichneten (The Branded) (EuroArts). Filmed at the 2005 Salzburg Festival, the set is an enormous statue that’s fallen down, with the characters clambering over it. The title refers to artists—outsiders metaphorically branded by fate. The main character, Alviano Salvago (Robert Brubaker), is a hunchback and artist. Director Nikolaus Lehnhoff ditches the hunchback idea, and makes Salvago a transvestite. Schreker’s lush, Wagnerian score is almost more disturbing than the master’s.
