Franz Schubert’s lovelorn 1828 song cycle Winterreise (Winter Journey), based on poems by Wilhelm Müller, gets a stunning orchestra-meets-Weimar-cabaret reinterpretation from Hans Zender that will have you believe spring has yet to arrive.
As the Barbican prepares to transform their Theatre into the winter’s landscape of Winterreise, Ben Eshmade talks to director Netia Jones, tenor Ian Bostridge, conductor Baldur Brönnimann and more about Schubert’s iconic piece of art.
