Whilst the concert and opera business continues to repeat
Wagner‘s operas in ever new facets, Christoph
Spering is interested in different aspects during the
Gluck and Wagner years 2013/14.
His serendipity led him to early Wagner and his
adaptation of the Gluck opera Iphigenia in Aulis,
from which Wagner formed an almost new opera.
Wagner conducted the world premiere of his version
at the Royal Court Opera in Dresden on 24 February
1847 – now Christoph Spering has made a new
recording of it with an outstanding ensemble.
