Event Description

“Opera Colorado presents a new production of composer Erich Korngold’s rare operatic gem, The Dead City (Die tote Stadt). We follow Paul, a widowed painter unraveled by grief over the death of his wife, Marie. Even the city he lives in—Bruges—haunts him. Life is turned upside down when Paul meets the bright and passionate Marietta, the mirror image of Marie. This psychological drama filled with lush cinematic music will leave you questioning what is real and what is only a dream.”

Performed in German, with English and Spanish subtitles at every seat.
