Zemlinsky adapted this powerful opera from the short story "The Birthday of the Infanta" by Oscar Wilde. The story depicts a nightmarish fairy tale wherein the protagonist is rejected by his love interest, only to discover for the first time that he has bears a gruesome appearance. The story is loosely autobiographical, and through allegory, explores themes of discrimination, rejection, and romantic infatuation. After fleeing Nazi Germany and finding a home in America, Zemlinsky’s career ended and he and his work remained unknown in his new country. Der Zwerg has been performed only a handful of times since its debut in Cologne, Germany in 1922.

This rarely performed opera will have two performances on Thursday, May 30 at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday, June 2 at 2:00 p.m. at The Theatre at Ace Hotel (The Theatre at Ace Hotel, 929 South Broadway, Los Angeles, CA 90015).
The production will feature acclaimed singers Shana Blake Hill, Oriana Falla, Roberto Perlas Gómez and Rodell Rosel.
