Recording Date 1994

A musical drama about love, freedom and responsibility. This 1994 production is based upon Henze's 1992 revised version of the opera.

With Wolfgang Sawallisch as musical director, Nikolaus Lehnhoff as director, and Gottfried Pilz in charge of stage and costume design it is not surprising that the enclosed live recording is a brilliant document of a highly celebrated opera production.

The audience responds enthusiastically to baritone François Le Roux in the title role, as well as to Marie Anne Häggander (Natalie), William Cochran (Electoral Prince of Brandenburg) and Helga Dernesch (Elector¡¦s wife).
