Der Zwerg

  • EMI

Based on Oscar Wilde's The Birthday of the Infanta, this 1922 opera was previously recorded in cut and falsified form. In this more faithful recording with David Kuebler in the title role, the portrayal of a dwarf given to a Spanish princess as a gift is a deeply felt, major work.
