Set in an unnamed totalitarian state, "The Miracle of Heliane" (Das Wunder der Heliane) features an intricate, erotic triangle between a ruthless despot, The Ruler; his beautiful and neglected wife, Heliane; and a young, messianic Stranger. An allegorical tale, about the destruction of a dictatorship by a woman, "Heliane" premiered to great acclaim in Hamburg in 1927, and remains extraordinarily relevant today. This new production is directed by Christian Räth, with sets and costumes by Esther Bialas, both making their SummerScape debuts. The excellent cast includes Lithuanian soprano Ausrine Stundyte alongside rising tenor Daniel Brenna, and bass-baritone Alfred Walker.
