Opera by Christoph Willibald Gluck

King Agamemnon is desperate. He is to sacrifice his daughter Iphigenia - only then will the wind carry the Greek navy to Troy. Will he follow the commandment of the gods or will his love for his child prevail? Does he want to be a good father or a glorious warlord? But perhaps Iphigenia also has a say in the matter. And then there is her fiancé Achilles, perhaps the bravest of all heroes ...

Christoph Willibald Gluck (1714 - 1787) was ahead of his time: he linked the music closely to the plot and attached great importance to naturalness and psychological depth. Iphigenie", first performed in Paris in 1774 as "Iphigénie en Aulide", is the first of his French operas in which he implemented his reforms. Yes, he was a revolutionary: his musical-dramatic language was to have a decisive influence on the history of opera - above all on Richard Wagner. Iphigenia" is a work full of human conflicts that are transported into timelessness by Gluck's powerful musical language: Euripides' ancient tragedy found its way via the Enlightenment with Jean Racine and Gluck into the here and now, where director Georg Quander reinterrogates the myth.

The production is the prelude to a Troy cycle that will continue in the summer at the Kammeroper Schloss Rheinsberg 2024.
