Meyerbeer - Les Huguenots
21:01 - 00:01
The dramatic events surrounding the St. Bartholomew's Day massacre, in which approximately 3000 Protestants were murdered by Catholics, forms the setting for this historical 'grand opera' by Giacomo Meyerbeer. Protestant Raoul is in love with Catholic Valentine: an impossible love. Religion is not the only matter that keeps the two lovers apart, as Valentine has been promised to the Catholic Comte de Nevers, his enemy... This work enjoyed an incredible popularity after it premiered, but suffered oblivion shortly after. This production of the Deutsche Oper Berlin (1991) marks a triumphant comeback for this timeless work, presented in a contemporary setting. Soloists: Angela Denning , Lucy Peacock , Richard Leech , Hartmut Welker (Graf von Saint-Bris), Camille Capasso , Martin Blasius . Conductor: Stefan Soltesz. Directed by John Dew.
