The opera explores the erotic triangle of a woman, her husband and her lover. In this psychological thriller, their explosive encounter soon becomes a cat-and-mouse game. When the tension erupts into violence, there can only be one winner. Oscar Wilde's poetic text is brought to life by Zemlinsky's sublime music, which captures the atmosphere perfectly and paints a picture of love, passion, murder and betrayal. Austrian composer Alexander Zemlinsky (1871-1942) used Oscar Wilde's unfinished play A Florentine Tragedy as libretto for his one-act opera, wich was first performed in 1917 at Staatsoper Stuttgart in Germany. This new production of Alexander Zemlinsky's masterpiece is sung in English and accompanied by piano.
