• A great 21st century cast

    Could we get today, in 2011, an ideal cast for recording of Die Tote Stadt?.

    The most important role, Paul, will be sung by Klaus Florian Vogt. He has sung the role several times in the theater, to great success, and there is a clear progress since six years ago, until his performance. He is mainly a lyrical, but with enough (just enough) stamina to sing the role. In the theater, he must be cautious and space his performances of the opera, but in studio we can expect an excellent result. We will need to reinforce the more dramatic singing, but his voice is perfect to transmit the passionate side, the doubts, the vulnerability of the young (he is supposed to be around 35 years old) Paul.

    As Marie/Marietta, Renée Fleming. The voice is just ideal for the role, it will adjust like a glove. Also, she has been singing Korngold's arias with very beautiful results. In the theater, her age and her tendency to deploy an excess of sugar will be problems to solve. In this studio recording we can aspire to perfection.





    Singing both Frank and Fritz we will hire Gerald Finley, with experience in the opera, and perhaps in his best years as a baritone.



    In the role of Brigitta, Daniela Denschlag, and one of the best German conductors of our times, Christian Thielemann (that knows the opera since the year 2004) leading the Wiener Philharmoniker orchestra.
