Siegfried Wagner: Sonnenflammen ('Sun Flames')

Shipping time: In stock | Expected delivery 1-2 days | Free UK Delivery
Siegfried Wagner’s eight opera, Sonnenflammen (‘Sun Flames’), portrays a deserter stranded in the decaying Byzantine Empire at the time of the Fourth Crusade. The tragedy reflects the mood in Germany at the time of the opera’s creation in 1912, just before the outbreak of the First World War. And, just as Constantinople was engulfed in flames in 1204, Wagner’s symbolic masterpiece is set ablaze with iridescent sounds, rhythmically gripping ensembles and passionate cantilenas. Siegfried Wagner has served for many years at Bayreuth as festival director. His operas are concerned with German traditions, and largely explore the mysterious and magical medieval world suggested by the Brothers Grimm. This performance from the Bayreuth Festival in August 2020 is the first staged production of the work since the Second World War, using a new critical full score by conductor Ulrich Leykam, and staged by Peter P. Pachl with a celebrated young cast.
