Winterreise STAGED with Johannes Held, bariton

Winterreise staged involves the senses in the experience of Schubert’s Lied masterpiece. Ebbe Knudsen’s direction, along with backdrops illustrated by Jörn Kaspuhl, builds a visual world in which one of musical history’s greatest works can unfold. As baritone Johannes Held and pianist Daniel Beskow create the musical landscape, the observer witnesses the wanderer’s world; we experience the snow, encounter the linden tree, follow the crow, and feel the loneliness of an empty train station. In accompanying the young man who lost his love, and seeing the elements that effect him, the viewer becomes a part of his cold world.
