Holzbauer: The Death of Dido (Bernius)

Ignaz Holzbauer

The Death of Dido

Singspiel in one act


In his penultimate opera Tod der Dido [The Death of Dido] (1779), Ignaz Holzbauer (1711-1783) presented himself not only as a master of fine musical word interpretation, but also as an imaginative music dramatist. While the original Italian version underlined his position as one of the leading opera composers of the time, the German version which he wrote a year later additionally emphasizes his position as a pioneer of the German National Opera. Frieder Bernius therefore chose this version for a production performed at the Schwetzingen Festival in 1997, which is now being released on CD for the first time.
