Phaedra by German composer Hans Werner Henze is a 'concert opera' in two acts whose first performance was given at the Berlin State Opera in 2007. Phaedra was Henze 's penultimate opera, and this item presents the vocal score, with the entire work lasting around 75 minutes. The parts are for Mezzo-Soprano, Soprano, Tenor, Countertenor, Bass Baritone, as well as a mime. Featuring a unique libretto by Christian Lehnert and sound effects by Francesco Antonioni, this opera presents the wonderful story of Phaedra, filled with drama and fantastic music. This Vocal Score  presents the work in German and English language, with German lyrics. Phaedra  was co-commissionedand co-produced by Staatsoper Unter den Linden Berlin, Berliner Festspiele, Theatre de la Monnaie Brussels, Alte Oper Frankfurt and Wiener Festwochen. Hans Werner Henze  was a hugely prolific composer who drew influences from a wide number of sources. Phaedra is regarded as among his greatest works and would certainly make for a stunning performance.
