About the programme

Henry, the English heir to the throne, enjoys shirking his duties and carousing by night. But his wife Catharina and the Earl of Rochester set a trap: They lure him into the tavern “The Grand Admiral” … Albert Lortzing, a master of the German comic opera, knows how to tellingly portray his characters. This also applies to his lovingly composed Zum Groß-Admiral (The Grand Admiral Tavern) that was premiered in Leipzig in 1847.

About the performers

Whether Humperdinck, Weber or Strauss – again and again Ulf Schirmer entered the lists for German opera while artistic director of the Munich Radio Orchestra. Schirmer returns as guest conductor of Lortzing’s Zum Groß-Admiral. Bernhard Bechtold plays the role of Henry, the heir to the throne. Anett Fritsch, who is already featured on a Mozart CD with the Munich Radio Orchestra, sings the role of Henry’s wife Catharina.

Unfortunately Julian Prégardien had to cancel his participation in Albert Lortzing’s Zum Groß-Admiral. We are happy that Bernhard Berchtold will step in and that we can welcome him again.
