One has to thank three initiators for the first own opera production in the Landestheater Eisenach. Jens Neundorff von Enzberg, the new director of the Meiningen State Theater, has more plans for the beautiful Bürgertheater in Rot und Weiß than guest performances by Meininger productions, as has been the case since the last renovation ten years ago. Director Dominik Wilgenbus brought him to Johann Christian Bach in his search for music theater works connected with the region. The Thuringia Philharmonic Gotha-Eisenach, not particularly familiar with early music, did an excellent job in “La clemenza di Scipione”. The premiere weekend became a great moment and a festival of voices.
