The Norfolk Premiere of Mahler
Late 19th century Vienna. A time of change is beckoning, and a new artistic movement, the Vienna Secession, is emerging. Gustav Klimt shocks the arts world, Freud’s ideas take hold – and progressive composer Gustav Mahler vies for the influential role of Director of the Court Opera.
 
In the apposite setting of the Hostry, we follow Mahler’s torment over whether to sacrifice his faith for his career. The fates of Mahler, his young wife, Alma Schindler – an intimate of Klimt – and their fellow artists, play out in this passionate drama accompanied by Mahler’s matchless music.
