DER STIMME DES HERRN

Das Buch mit sieben Siegeln

HOUSTON SYMPHONY

Der Stimme des Herrn

Das Buch mit Sieben Siegeln

A spectacle to behold. A concert experience to leave you changed. Massive forces converge in a sonic lightning bolt of earth-shattering force in Franz Schmidt’s towering oratorio, which recounts the book of Revelation and its apocalyptic vision of the world’s final destruction. From vivid depictions of the breaking of the seals, the Horsemen of the Apocalypse, and the seven trumpets to the final, exultant “Hallelujah,” to hear this work live is to feel its awe-inspiring power. Mr. Brownlee appears in concert as Der Stimme des Herrn alongside Andrés Orozco-Estrada at the podium.

Canceled due to COVID-19.

ANDREI SCHTSCHEKALOW

Boris Godunov

OPER FRANKFURT

Andrei Schtschekalow

Boris Godunov

A ruler consumed by guilt, schemers hungry for power, a fickle people and a monk who writes history: Pushkin wrote a play in Shakespearean style in 1825 based on works by the historian Nikolai Karamsin about political unrest in Russia before the first Romanow ascended the throne in 1613. Thanks to Mussorgsky’s opera, this episode in Russian history became known to the West. Mr. Brownlee appears as Andrei Schtschekalow in Mussorgsky's unmistakenly Russian work.

DER HOLLÄNDER

Der fliegende Holländer

OPER FRANKFURT

Der Holländer

Der fliegende Holländer

Set in a poor village by the sea, in an incestuous, claustrophobic, dead end world, where seamen and tradesmen sell their daughters, Daland’s daughter Senta, desperate to escape, is prepared to commit to the Flying Dutchman and redeem his soul. The Dutchman's a sort of Ghost Rider, driven, fleeing ideals and dreams with his comrades. Senta and the Dutchman: two who are fleeing but cannot escape their past nor their surroundings. Only death can release them. Mr. Brownlee appears in the title role of Wagner's thrilling drama.
