In Henze’s intense opera, a famous poet manipulates the people around him to invigorate his creativity. When his muse no longer inspires, he engineers a tragedy to provoke his latest literary triumph. The enthralling score, set to a compelling libretto by W.H. Auden and Chester Kallman, features exquisite duets and ensembles.
