Supertitles in English and French

Numerous composers have sought to come to grips with this monument of Shakespearian tragedy. Keen to perform the title role of King Lear, the baritone Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau turned to Aribert Reimann who initially declined the proposition. However, in 1975, when Munich’s Bayerische Staatsoper approached him, he finally agreed to take up the challenge of this impossible opera. From the somber orchestral timbres and the highly nuanced vocal lines emerge all the tortuous dissimulations and violence of human relationships. No illusions remain, however, in Calixto Bieito’s cathartic production in which each of the characters is stripped bare: collective hysteria gives way to an old man’s solitude. Destroyed, like a new-born babe, he weeps to find “that we are come to this great stage of fools.”
