Making a guest appearance at the Erkel Theatre during this Shakespeare season will be a veritable treat: Wolf-Ferrari's Sly. Although the composer originally gained fame for his successful comic operas, Sly is a different kind of story: after starting as a comedy, it transforms into a sorrowful tragedy based on the induction scenes in Shakespeare's The Taming of the Shrew; the music, however, bears the hallmarks of his earlier verismo operas, with strong parallels to Offenbach's Tales of Hoffmann as well.
This co-production by the Erkel Theatre and the National Theatre of Szeged is being directed by Pál Göttinger.
