Das Wunder der Heliane
Exactly 90 years after the creation of Erich Wolfgang Korngold's Das Wunder der Heliane, Opera Vlaanderen is bringing this rarely performed opera to the stage. Das Wunder der Heliane is steeped in a romantically charged world of symbols and earthly eroticism. The composer based his work on the mystery play by the author Hans Kaltneker, who died tragically young. Korngold masterfully transports listeners to an elusive, often stirring world of sound.
