Misc. Comments

Peter Heise’s opera of 1878 King and Marshal is regarded as one of the most important Danish operas from the 19th century. Until now the work has been almost unknown outside Denmark, probably mainly because of the state of the performance material and the language barrier. The opera can, however, hold its own among other 19th-century operas both musically and dramatically.
