Cinematic opera on the boundary between reality and dreams
A intricately crafted orchestration of Korngold
An opera composed by Korngold, a music director who led the golden age of American Hollywood. Korngold’s orchestrations dominated Hollywood music at the time, and he won two Oscars for his scores for films such as ‘The Adventures of Robin Hood’ and ‘The Private Lives of Elizabeth and Essex’.
Paul, who recently lost his beloved wife, can’t bear to throw away her things, including her hair, and misses her every day. He’s swayed when he meets Marietta, who resembles his wife but vows never to look at another woman, no matter how much she resembles his late wife. Marietta sees his dead wife as a rival and seduces him with her seductive dancing. He is torn between the past and the present and becomes increasingly unable to distinguish between the two women. Once again, Marietta seduces Paul, and he finds himself falling for it. Feeling guilty, he hallucinates that a procession from a religious festival is pushing its way into the house, and believing Marietta to be the devil, he strangles her with his wife's hair. When Paul wakes up, he sees the room tidy as if nothing had happened, as if he had dreamed it, and decides to leave town.
