A performance of Weber's rarely-heard opera Euryanthe, a tale of knights and courtly love set in 12th century France. Starring soprano Melanie Diener.
Louise Fryer presents our Thursday Opera Matinée, which continues the week's theme of music conducted by Gustav Mahler. Weber's 'grand heroic romantic' opera Euryanthe is now almost forgotten but Mahler conducted a new production in Vienna in 1903. It's a tale of knights and courtly love, set in 12th-century France.
