Hugo Wolf

Der Corregidor


Concert performance in two parts, in four acts, in German, with Hungarian and English surtitles

Hungarian premiere

There is no greater adherent of Wagner's to be found than Hugo Wolf. He even had the opportunity to meet him, and it was not only for the Ring that he exhibited an undying affection: the immense attraction also extended to the Master's more youthful Romantic operas. And to some degree to Liszt as well, whom he held in high esteem, as he did Bruckner. The composer of more than 300 songs, Wolf wrote only one opera. With our Hungarian premiere of Der Corregidor, an essentially light-hearted work that revels in highly diverse colourings, we will be further enriching our portrait of German composers working in the footsteps of Wagner.
