Dreyfus in Opera and Ballet

Alternative title
Dreyfus As Opera and Dance Drama
Synopsis
Focuses on two German stage premieres with the Dreyfus affair as their theme: the opera ‘Die Affare’ ('The Affair’) at the Deutsche Oper Berlin in May 1994, and the ballet ‘J’accuse’ at the Bonn municipal opera in September 1994. Both were created by George R Whyte, whose long-standing interest in the life story of officer Alfred Dreyfus, who was wrongly accused of treason and was forced to wait many years for his rehabilitation, inspired the works.
