The War is Always On

Zimmermann's 'Die Soldaten' in Milan,
enthralls GIUSEPPE PENNISI

 

When Bernd Alois Zimmermann's Die Soldaten was presented at the Salzburg Festival, the title of my review was (suitably) World without God [See 30 August 2012]. The production was a joint venture with La Scala, where a series of performances opened on 17 January 2015. I hope that other opera houses will show this very enthralling and engrossing production. M&V readers are referred to the 30 August 2012 review where the opera is discussed extensively; also the main production team and the principal singers at La Scala are the same as those who staged and performed the opera two and a half years ago in Salzburg...
