About

In 1913, when he was only eighteen years old, Carl Orff finished his first opera, Gisei; an ancient tale of Japanese tragedy set in a village school at which a high-ranking official sacrifices his own son in order to save his masterís son. A young and more tentative side to the composer can be found in this work, which prefigures the imaginative flourishing of one of the most original composers of the twentieth century.
