Overview

The Komische Oper Berlin mounted this version of Jacques Offenbach's three-act opera bouffe Ritter Blaubart, from a new German adaptation by Walter Felsenstein and Horst Seeger (which was based, in turn, on the score by Henri Meilhac and Ludovic Halévy). The production, however, is not a traditional stage opera but a cinematic recreation - mounted, performed and shot in the DEFA Studio in Babelsberg, in 1973. Felsenstein and Georg Mielke authored the script and share directing duties, Helga Scherff designed the costumes, and Paul Lehmann did the sets. The cast features Hanns Nocker as Sire de Barbe-Bleue, Anny Schlemm as Boulotte and Werner Enders as King Bobèche. The Orchestra and Chorus of the Komische Oper Berlin provide musical accompaniment.
