Gottfried von Einem’s “Dantons Tod” will be showcased on Vienna State Opera’s live stream service on March 24, 2018.
The rare work will feature Wolfgang Koch, Herbert Lippert, Jörg Schneider, Thomas Ebenstein, and Olga Bezsmertna under the musical direction of Susanna Malkki. The new production will be directed by Josef Ernst Köpplinger.
The stream kicks off at 7 p.m. local time and is slated to run until around 9:30 p.m. That’s around 2 p.m. EDT and 11 a.m. PST for the start time.
While tickets start at 14 euros (approximately $16 USD) for most live streams, this one is special as it will be completely free of charge. All viewers must do is register with the website to enjoy this performance.
Next up on the slate of live streams will be the four installments of “Der Rings des Nibelungen,” “Turandot,” “Andrea Chénier,” “Simon Boccanegra,” “Capriccio,” “La Traviata,” “Rigoletto,” “Der Freischütz,” “Lohengrin,” and “Falstaff.”
