The Resurrection of Le Tribut de Zamora by Charles Gounod

28 January 2018 – Prinzregententheater, Munich

The Münchner Rundfunkorchester and the Chor des Bayerischen Rundfunks, under the direction of Hervé Niquet, will revive Gounod’s last opera, Le Tribut de Zamora. This veritable epic typical of the tradition of French grand opéra sweeps the spectator off on a journey through the history of ninth-century Spain and enables the composer to enlarge his palette. This modern premiere of the work in concert will also be recorded for a world premiere release in the ‘French Opera’ series of CD-books.
