The Miracle of Heliane
by Erich Wolfgang Korngold
2019, Sosnoff Theater, SummerScape
First performed in the U.S. almost 100 years after its world premiere in Hamburg, this lushly orchestrated allegorical tale was staged by Christian Räth in 2019. Performed by a remarkable cast and the 80-member American Symphony Orchestra, this staging was a stellar example of Maestro Botstein’s commitment to reintroduce rarely seen operatic treasures to a contemporary audience.
