Begun in the year 1900, amidst the art nouveau curlicues of Klimt and the Jugendstil, Schönberg’s grand cantata is written in a lush, late-romantic style indebted to Wagner and Mahler and pre-dating his pioneering atonal works. This setting of the mediaeval Danish legend of Gurre Castle – a love triangle between King Waldemar, his mistress Tove and a jealous Queen – gains an innovative new dimension in this first-ever staging of the work, directed by Pierre Audi.

- First collaboration between DNO Artistic Director Pierre Audi & Music Director Marc Albrecht.
- First staging of Schönberg’s mammoth cantata with gargantuan orchestra, five soloists, speaker and multiple choruses
- Gurrelieder, premiered in 1913, marks the culmination of Schönberg’s lush late-Romantic style before atonal works dominated his output
- Extra features: Includes a Documentary of the making of the production and a Cast Gallery.
