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. Julian Prégardien, who has distinguished himself with outstanding performances as a Bach Evangelist, in the works of Mozart, as well as in song recitals, plays the role of Henry, the heir to the throne. The equally distinguished Anett Fritsch, who is already featured on a Mozart CD with the Munich Radio Orchestra, sings the role of Henry’s wife Catharina.
