A production of UNITEL, Munich
* Live from the Bavarian State Opera, one of the 20th century’s most gripping operas is seen in this unanimously acclaimed Munich production from 1985.
* The opera, staged by Jean-Pierre
Ponnelle and conducted by Wolfgang Sawallisch, tells the story of the goldsmith Cardillac who is unable to part with his creations and recovers the objects he has sold by murdering the purchasers.
* A sensation at its 1926 premiere, Cardillac is based on E.T.A. Hoffmann’s celebrated tale of an incomparable but obsessive goldsmith and a rash of mysterious murders in the Paris of Louis XIV.
