The Prince von Pappenschmear

CamerataWorks, New Camerata Opera’s in-house film studio, is proud to present the made for YouTube opera short “The Prince von Pappenschmear”. Composed by Peter Engelbert, with a libretto by Adam Laten Willson, chapter one of this trilogy will make its much anticipated premiere in spring 2017. The work was scored for NCO soloists, clarinet, violin, cello and piano. Set in Nazi era Germany, the story follows an exciting undercurrent of women’s liberation in an historic Jewish gynecologist’s office. These contrasting elements create an intriguing mix of absurd farce and surrealist imagery. “The Prince von Pappenschmear” is CamerataWorks' inaugural production.
