Abstract  

Goethes Iphigenie, nach ihres Dichters eigenen Worten eine ,,tragdie en cinq actes, tout fait selon les rgles', ist um eine klassische Intrige zentriert, die den Geschwistern Orest und Iphigenie die Flucht aus der Gewalt des Taurerknigs Thoas und den vermeintlich vom Delphischen Orakel geforderten Raub des Kultbildes der Diana ermglichen soll. Aber zuletzt deckt Iphigenie das Komplott selbst auf und rettet gerade dadurch sich und die Ihren; nicht die Zwnge der Handlungsfhrung, sondern die Dispositionen der Protagonistin bestimmen den Ausgang des Dramas. Ein solcher Bedeutungsverlust der Stckintrige wre kaum denkbar ohne die von den englischen Shakespeare-Apologeten des 18. Jahrhunderts lancierte Kritik an der Aristotelischen Doktrin vom Primat der Handlung, die im Umkreis des Straburger Goethe, namentlich in Jakob Michael Reinhold Lenzens Anmerkungen bers Theater, ihren Hhepunkt erreicht. Der Weimarer Goethe findet die Legitimation fr seine Normabweichung in einer analogen Aufhebung der tragenden Trughandlung am Ende des Sophokleischen Philoktet, der ihm wohl schon in seiner Straburger Zeit von Herder nahegebracht worden war. Mglicherweise stt er dabei auf ein authentisches Anliegen des ,,groen Meisters seiner frhen Jahre', den nur zu erahnenden Wunsch, der knstlichen Mechanik der Euripideischen Intrigenstcke eine (beinahe) letzte Tragdie entgegenzusetzen, in der die edle Natur des jugendlichen Helden ber den ihm angesonnenen Betrug triumphiert.

Karl Goldmark (1830–1915) was undoubtedly one the most influential composers of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, and through his first opera – The Queen of Sheba – he was also very well-known abroad. This opera, with its very fashionable oriental subject, was first performed in Vienna in 1875 and was one of the greatest successes of the period. After Merlin (1886) and The Cricket on the Hearth (1896), a “song-opera” strongly influenced by the Biedermeier-period, Goldmark wrote three operas over the next ten years. A Prisoner of War (libretto E. Schlicht, premiered in 1899 in Vienna) was based on one episode of the Iliad. In this short opera the composer tried to express the change of Achilles’ soul, but he mostly failed due to a relatively weak and conventional libretto and vague musical style. In the following opera, Götz von Berlichingen (libretto A. M. Willner, premiered 1902) the libretto is also the weakest element of the work and the whole opera reminds one of Meyerbeer ’s operas. The composer found a renewed inspiration during the work on his last opera – The Winter’s Tale (libretto by Alfred Maria Willner after Shakespeare, premiered in 1907 in Vienna). This fairy tale opera is full of interesting musical moments and elements written in Goldmark’s late style and is still attractive for the opera-going public.
