)-- Kultur announces the release of two classic opera performances, The Vienna State Opera Production of Alban Berg’s Wozzeck, conducted by Claudio Abbado and Bayerische Staatsoper production of Richard Wagner’s Tannhäuser conducted by Zubin Mehta.
Tannhäuser: This groundbreaking performance of Richard Wagner’s early opera is directed by David Alden, one of the most iconoclastic interpreters of classical operas. He is noted for the controversial and confrontational concepts of his productions and for his striking minimalist use of set and costume designs.
Wozzeck: Claudio Abbado conducts the chorus and orchestra of the Vienna State Opera in a powerful recording of the first of Alban Berg’s two influential operas. Philip Langridge stars as Andres in this moving performance of one of the great classics of modern music.
