the child and the dwarf

Video trailer of a very interesting double-bill from the Bavarian State Opera, Munich – Maurice Ravel’s L’Enfant et les sortilèges (which Portland Opera will be performing with the composer’s other one-acter, L’heure espagnole, next month) and Alexander Zemlinksy’s Der Zwerg (The Dwarf), written in 1922 and premiered in Cologne under the baton of Otto Klemperer.
