Das Liebesverbot (Blu-ray)

Wagner`s rarely performed early comic opera, based on Shakespeare`s Measure for Measure, enjoys its Spanish debut in a new production by director Kasper Holten. The lively score boasts clear Italian, French and Weberian influences that pre-date the composer`s mature voice, yet the music continually delights with the unmistakable emergence of Wagner`s precocious genius.

His adaptation of the Bard`s play reflects the rebellious modd of a Revolutionary Germany, vindicating sensual love and attacking the fanatical repression of sexuality by a puritanical and hypocritical authority. Ivor Bolton conducts a vibrant cast featuring English baritone and Cardiff Singer of the World Lieder Prize-winner Christoph Maltman, Turkish-Viennese tenor and BBC Radio 3 New Generation Artist Ilker Arcayurek and Germany`s htotest Wagnerian leading lady, Manuela Uhl.
