Starting October 31, Titus Engel conducts the new production of Carl Nielsen's comic opera Maskerade at the Frankfurt Opera.

While the work is considered the national opera in Denmark, it has so far led a rather niche existence in other countries. However, Nielsen's Masquerade, based on a comedy by the "Danish Molière" Ludvig Holberg published in 1724, has much to offer musically: folk songs, Mozartian lightness, romantic cantilenas, and energetic dances in a virtuosic orchestral setting full of harmonic and contrapuntal surprises.
