Wagner's rarely performed early comic opera, based on Shakespeare's Measure for Measure, enjoys its Spanish debut in a new production by director Kasper Holten. The lively score boasts clear Italian, French and Weberian influences that pre-date the composer's mature voice, yet the music continually delights with the unmistakable emergence of Wagner's precocious genius. His adaptation of the Bard's play reflects the rebellious mood of a Revolutionary Germany, vindicating sensual love and attacking the fanatical repression of sexuality by a puritanical and hypocritical authority. Ivor Bolton conducts a vibrant cast featuring English baritone and Cardiff Singer of the World Lieder Prize-winner Christopher Maltman, Turkish-Viennese tenor and BBC Radio 3 New Generation Artist Ilker ArcayĆ¼rek and Germany's hottest Wagnerian leading lady, Manuela Uhl. Review Kasper Holten's 2016 Madrid staging of Das Liebesverbot is lively.With moving walkways and quicksilver scene changes, the production generates sustained visual interest, with witty directorial touches galore...Fred Cohn --Editor's Choice
