THE DARK MIRROR: ZENDER’S WINTERREISE
Celebrated tenor Ian Bostridge – the world’s leading performer of Franz Schubert’s Die Winterreise – combines forces with the West Australian Symphony Orchestra for this stunning music-theatre event.
Plunged into a stark wintry landscape, a wanderer embarks on an intense dramatic journey – his reflections on life moving between gallows humour and well-worn nostalgia, between love and loss.
Told through Bostridge’s impeccable performance, haunting visuals and Hans Zender’s delicately woven instrumentation, this Winterreise is a sublime interpretation of Schubert’s iconic song cycle.
Devised by leading opera director Netia Jones, this rare fully-staged production brings the shadowy world of Winterreise spectacularly to life.
Performed by members of the West Australian Symphony Orchestra conducted by Baldur Brönnimann.
