and others

Based on a novel by Belgian Symbolist poet Georges Rodenbach, Die tote Stadt is a heady, haunting story of love and obsession. It is set in a surreal version of Bruges, where protagonist Paul is mourning the death of his saintly young wife, Marie. Die tote Stadt is “sumptuously lyrical, theatrically vivid and glitteringly orchestrated” (The New York Times). This semi-staged performance of the opera draws Bard’s probing and far-reaching festival to a ravishing close.
