“L’Africaine – Vasco da Gama” in Frankfurt

Antonello Manacorda will be conducting Giacomo Meyerbeer’s “L’Africaine – Vasco da Gama” at Oper Frankfurt. The Premiere takes place on February 25th, 2018.

Meyerbeer and his librettist Eugène Scribe busied themselves with the story of L’Africaine for almost 30 years but it was never finished. It was first performed in 1864, a year after Meyerbeer’s death, in an edition by François-Joseph Fétis and was performed all over the world. It was not until 2013 that Theater Chemnitz used Meyerbeer’s original manuscript as the basis for a rediscovery – under the title of Vasco de Gama. The first ever performances of the work in Frankfurt, directed by Tobias Kratzer using this reconstructed original edition, are under the original title of »L’Africaine«.
