Notes and Editorial Reviews

The opera "Der Tod und das Mädchen" is based on Ariel Dorfman’s play "Death and the Maiden." In this production, director Nicola Raab focuses on the relationship between perpetrator and victim. Zwicker’s musical language is closely connected to the emotional dimensions of the story and plays with Schubert's eponymous string quartet.
