DER ZWERG

DER ZWERG
MUSIC BY ALEXANDER ZEMLINSKY

Suppressed by German authorities before World War II, this rarely performed masterpiece receives its Company premiere in a sumptuous production inspired by the paintings of Velázquez.

Sung in German with English supertitles

RUNNING TIME
Approximately 1 hours and 30 minutes, with no intermission
