When it first premiered in the 1920s, this German opera about a man obsessed with his dead wife touched a nerve in the population, which had recently endured the collapse of Germany after World War I. Die Tote Stadt manages to haunt its viewers today, even if they’re unfamiliar with the time period it was written in. Look above for opera tickets to this show.

Die Tote Stadt—About Die Tote Stadt

The title of this opera translates to “The Dead City,” and it’s a fitting name indeed. The main character, Paul, is still deeply in mourning after his wife’s tragic death. He has a shrine in his home dedicated to her memory, and can’t seem to move past the trauma of losing her. When he meets a seductive young woman who reminds him of his wife, his mind threatens to snap.

Die Tote Stadt—Plumb the depths of psychosis

Die Tote Stadt has famously been compared to Alfred Hitchcock’s Vertigo for the way it twists and turns, and is known for provoking a sense of vertigo in its viewers, who watch as Paul sinks into psychosis, experiencing terrifying visions that illicit guilt and rage from him. This intense opera isn’t one to be missed. Get Die Tote Stadt tickets now!
