About:
The premiere of the opera Holger Danske (Ogier the Dane) in 1789 in Copenhagen incited political controversy; only six performances took place. With this recording, it assumes its rightful place as the first masterpiece of Danish opera. It is a rescue opera, a fairy tale and a Turkish opera all at once.
