ArtistsHans Christoph Begemann
Chor der Oper Chemnitz
The action is set during the Wars of the Roses in the fifteenth century. Lord Artur Norton is forced to leave his country, and is away for so long his wife Leonore believes him dead, and becomes engaged to marry Count Edmund of Pembroke. However, on their wedding day her missing husband returns. The two men initially insist on the validity of their claims to Leonore, but then Edmund generously concedes that Leonore belongs to Artur and declares that he is ready to renounce his beloved bride. He even secures a pardon for his rival from the king. However, it is precisely this act of kindness that makes it impossible for Leonore to decide between the two men. Instead she takes her own life.
