Hans Werner Henze: "I don't often listen to my earlier stuff. But there comes a moment when you ask yourself: Did I really do that? Was I that great?"

As part of the Ruhrtriennale 2010, Hans Werner Henze's opera "Gisela" was premiered in a spectacular production in the Zeche Zweckel machine hall in Gladbeck.

Hans Werner Henze had a special relationship with Berlin, which started to form in the last weeks of World War 2. He returned to the city frequently, whether as conductor of the Berlin Philharmonic, as a fellow of the Wissenschaftskolleg or to attend the numerous premieres and first performances of his operas at Berlin's three opera houses.
