UNVERGESSEN ("Unforgotten"), opera in 3 acts
The premere of Lühl's first opera in Jauary 2004 in Bolzano/Southern Tyrol, was acclaimed by the Italian audience, as well as the Italian and Austrian critics. The here enclosed snapshots are taken from the original production of the Premiere.
The opera plot is about a historical drama taking place during World War II. The work was premiered on January 8, 2004 in one of the most prestigeous concert halls in the South-Tyrolean capital: the Walther-Haus. Lühl's work was performed 10 times on stage after the premiere.
Among the main parts we can count in the young main hero and a nurse, who helps him out during difficult times.
The choir only intervenes during the two first acts and has a short intervention at the end of the third act.
Not unlike Bizet's "Carmen" or Mozart's "Zauberflöte", certain solo singers' parts feature spoken text, except for the main actors and the choir part.
The original score, despite the predominant German language, also counts several features in other tongues, like English, French, Polish and Italian.
