Shimmering with evocative and sensuous music, Zemlinsky’s Der Zwerg adapts Oscar Wilde’s poignant tale of an outsider whose earnest affection for a princess leads to a fatal rebuke. Suppressed by German authorities before World War II, this rarely performed masterpiece receives its Company premiere in a sumptuous production inspired by the paintings of Velázquez.
