Ein Traumspiel is a German-language opera by Aribert Reimann after the 1901 play A Dream Play (Swedish: Ett drömspel) by August Strindberg. [1] Carla Henius arranged the translation to German by Peter Weiss for a libretto. Reimann composed the opera in 1983 and 1984 on a commission from the Kiel theatre (Bühnen der Landeshauptstadt Kiel). It was premiered at the Opernhaus Kiel on 20 June 1965, staged by Joachim Klaiber [de] and conducted by Michael Gielen.[1] Gielen stepped in for the Generalmusikdirektor who was ill.[2]
