Second chance: Schubert's 'Fierrabras' with Schade, Röschmann and Zeppenfeld from Salzburg
Schubert's 'Fierrabras' is a three-act German opera with spoken dialogue to a libretto by Josef Kupelwieser. Emma, the daughter of King Karl (Charlemagne, from the German name for Charlemagne, Karl der Große), is in love with Eginhard. Their love must be kept secret since Karl does not approve. Karl's knights, led by Roland, have defeated the Moors and captured Fierrabras, the son of the Moorish prince Boland. Karl does not imprison Fierrabras. When they are brought to Karl's castle, Fierrabras spies Emma, and recognizes her as someone he fell in love with in Rome. Performers:
Julia Kleiter: Emma.
Dorothea Röschmann: Florinda.
