“A powerful musical journey.”
– Guardian (U.K.)

In this “enthralling” theatrical production (Telegraph, U.K.), Schubert’s poignant song cycle about lost love is refracted through the German composer Hans Zender’s contemporary orchestrations and director Netia Jones’s stunning monochrome imagery. Tenor Ian Bostridge—one of today’s foremost interpreters of Winterreise—sets out once more on the path of existential reflection brought to life by Jones’s film, projections, and stage design.


A co-production of Barbican Centre, Cal Performances, National Taichung Theater, and the Britten Sinfonia.
