ROMEO AND JULIET IN THE VILLAGE
FREDERICK DELIUS 1862-1934

Lyrical drama in six images / UA 1907
Text by Frederick Delius, Jelka Rosen-Delius and Charles Francis Keary.

ALL OCCUPATIONS
Musical Director Elias Grandy

Sali Jonathan Abernethy
Vreli Esther Dierkes
Manz Dietrich Full
Marti Magnús Baldvinsson
The black violinist Johannes Martin Kränzle
Sali as a child Soloist of the children’s choir of the Frankfurt Opera
Vreli as a child Soloist of the children’s choir of the Frankfurt Opera

Delius’ opera is based on Gottfried Keller’s poetic realism anchored version of Shakespeare’s tragedy: Venue is not Verona, but a Swiss village, the protagonists are not Romeo and Juliet, but Sali and Vreli. The eternal companion of lovers who can not come together and eventually die together is a mysterious black violinist who embodies both an idea of ??freedom and the fate of the two. With A Village Romeo and JulietThe British composer Frederick Delius, who has been left unnoticed for too long, creates a unity of text and music that combines nuanced, sound-filled sensations with colorful natural panoramas. The score sometimes reminds of Claude Debussy or Richard Strauss. Director Eva-Maria Höckmayr and stage designer Christian Schmidt transfer the work into our present, allowing dream and reality, youth and old age, life and death to merge.
