Austrian Bass Christoph Seidl, who relocated from the Gärtnerplatztheater Munich to the Aalto-Theater in Essen this summer, mounts the stage of his new artistic home: As prison governor Frank in Johann Strauss’ “Fledermaus”, he is in the right place to spread a little Austrian flair around.
Only a few short weeks after the first evening of the operetta’s run, Mr. Seidl will invite his public into the opera’s foyer for a lied recital with works by Loewe, Schubert, Saint-Saëns, Vaughan Williams, and Hugo Wolf, presenting a different aspect of his art.
