Komische Oper Berlin - Hans Werner Henze - The Bassarids - Cadmus

Jens Larsen did a very good job in the role of Cadmus, with his warm and sonorous bass holding onto a worn-out presentation of the abdicated king of Thebes. Cadmus was seen as a hunched old man, victim of pseudo-religious horrors, cautious and trying to be the voice of reason. Alas, he had not been heard. He sensed what was really coming: his own blood to destroy his royal house (“Could a new young god be my grandson?”) In the end, when Cadmus’ suspicions were finally confirmed, he also gave a very convincing portrayal of  a defeated grandfather. In those moments Larsen radiated his full despair and anguish.
