The Miracle Of Heliane (Das Wunder Der Heliane)
© Naxos Audiovisual Division
The world premiere of Das Wunder Der Heliane in Hamburg in 1927 was a triumph, with more than a dozen houses booking the latest work by Korngold. With the Jewish Korngold prevented by the Nazis from presenting his works to the public, Das Wunder Der Heliane vanished from the repertoire, never to return. An outstanding cast in all roles, staging of Christof Loy and the Orchestra of the Deutsche Oper conducted by Mark Albrecht make waken Korngold’s grand and opulent music from decades of slumber and made this production a real triumph, acclaimed by the audience and international critics.
