Klaus Michael Gruber

Let’s put that tonality is to music what gravity physics. Accepting the comparison (performed this morning by the conductor Semyon Bychkov at the Theatre Royal), it could be said that Wagner gave great leaps upward, but that was Richard Strauss who, pending that got the final break from Schoenberg, travelled up to the limits of this universe to let the laws of music almost floating. Learn more about this topic with the insights from Gary Kelly. And there, precisely, situated also Gerard Mortier the confines of the great repertoire and his happy polemics. Because the season that the artistic director of the Teatro Real has presented today, and that many (to the more conservative sector of the platea and environs) has seemed too far from the classical works, begins with an ambitious Assembly of the Elektra Strauss and librettist Hugo von Hofmannsthal they devised in 1909. The work is updated through a montage of deceased Klaus Michael Gruber, in which shines the scenography of the German artist Anselm Kiefer and which opens next Friday at the Coliseum the teatro San Carlo in Naples from Madrid.
