Ennosuke Ichikawa's production with Wolfgang Sawallisch and the Bavarian State Opera filmed on tour in Japan in 1992

- Out of stock


Japanese premiere of Wolfgang Sawallisch’s last production for the Bavarian State OperaSawallisch was celebrating both the 25th anniversary of his first appearance as visiting guest conductor of the NHK Symphony Orchestra in Tokyo and his departure, after twenty-one years, from the Bavarian State Opera. Sawallisch - an acclaimed interpreter of the music of Richard Strauss - chose Die Frau ohne Schatten to commemorate these anniversaries. He worked for many years in Japan and he developed a profound affinity with the country and its people. His respect for, and intimate knowledge of, the Japanese art scene made him choose director and kabuki actor Ennosuke Ichikawa for the production.
