GOLDMARK: DIE KÖNIGIN VON SABA
According to the ancient legend, the Queen of Sheba sought Truth and Wisdom, and when she heard of Solomon’s insight, she journeyed to Jerusalem to put the king’s knowledge to the test. Karl Goldmark was born into a devout Jewish family and although he lived in Vienna, he kept his Hungarian identity until death. The composer had a voice student whose exotic beauty someone once compared to that of the Queen of Sheba. This gave Goldmark the inspiration to write an opera about the Oriental queen. The libretto tells the tale of a love triangle. The Queen of Sheba unleashes her charms on one of Solomon’s diplomats, a young man engaged to the daughter of the High Priest of Jerusalem.

CAST
Queen of Sheba: Erika Gál
Sulamith: Eszter Sümegi
Assad: Boldizsár László
King Solomon: Zoltán Kelemen

Conductor: Balázs Kocsár

Featuring on piano: Kálmán Szennai

Highlights staged by Sylvie Gábor and Albert Mányik
