Read more about the opera Soldaten

One of the most controversial operas from the 1960s here received its British premiere in an astonishing act of compression within the confines of the King's Theatre. It actually worked very well in the circumstances, Sometimes three stages carried action simultaneously, and the orchestra was big, and very loud. Several of the singers - at least the rapacious officers - were forced to scream at the extreme upper range of their voices. It was amazing that the wonderful Catherine Gayer and Peter-Christoph Runge, as the central characters, both gave superb accounts of their exhausting roles.
