»Il prigioniero«: NDR Elbphilharmonie Orchester / Thomas Hengelbrock

2. Internationales Musikfest Hamburg

Torture through hope – the prisoner in Luigi Dallapiccola’s opera »Il prigioniero« is at the mercy of an eleged kindly gaoler. Will he ever be given the chance to taste freedom again or is it all a cruel illusion? NDR Principal Conductor Thomas Hengelbrock, joined by the NDR Symphony Orchestra, prize-winning choirs and powerful soloists, sets this 50-minute »passion-opera« side by side with Bach’s opening chorus »Kommt, ihr Töchter, helft mir klagen (Come, you daughters, help me to lament)« from the »St Matthew Passion«.
