Dutch National Opera presents Alexander von Zemlinsky’s Eine florentinische Tragödie (1917), with Marc Albrecht conducting the Netherlands Philharmonic Orchestra and Ausrine Stundyte (Bianca), Nikolai Schukoff (Guido Bardi), and John Lundgren (Simone) as soloists. Eine florentinische Tragödie (1917) fully adheres to George Bernard Shaw’s famous dictum that every opera is “when a tenor and soprano want to make love, but are prevented from doing so by a baritone”. Yet Zemlinsky’s piece presents this core narrative in its most condensed form, and its conclusion is one of the most original and enigmatic in opera history. This suspenseful, opulent score is in good hands with Marc Albrecht and the Netherlands Philharmonic Orchestra, whose proficiency in late-Romantic repertoire was crowned with a 2021 Opus Klassik Award for their recording of Zemlinsky’s symphonic poem Die Seejungfrau.
