Heinrich Marschner’s The Vampire is viewed as the epitome of German Gothic romance. Drawing on Carl Maria von Weber’s The Marksman, Marschner goes in search of a musical language for the dark and the demonic, and in doing so paves the way for Richard Wagner. The young director Antú Romero Nunes uses Marschner’s grand romantic opera as the starting point for a captivating journey into the eerie realm of the pale, bloodsucking seducer of women. Warning: you may get goosebumps! In recent years, director Antú Romero Nunes has above all made a name for himself with imaginative and unconventional treatments of classics such as Schiller’s The Robbers at the Maxim Gorki Theatre, and Don Juan, Last Party and Moby Dick at the Thalia Theater Hamburg. In his engagement with Marschner’s opera, he works together with Dessau’s general music director, Antony Hermus, as the Master of Ceremonies in order to explore the heart of the vampire myth in all its various iterations – and the audience’s enjoyment of the thrill provided by fear!
