ADDITIONAL INFORMATION ON THIS PERFORMANCE

Quote from Wikipedia
Gisela! oder: Die merk- und denkwürdigen Wege des Glücks (German for Gisela! or: The Strange and Memorable Ways of Happiness) is an opera by Hans Werner Henze.

Synopsis
Gisela, a young student of art history from the city of Oberhausen, visits Naples with her boyfriend Hanspeter and a group of superficial and arrogant students. They attend a commedia dell’arte performance in a folk theatre and Gisela is fascinated by the young actor Gennaro who plays the role of Pulcinella. Gisela and Gennaro encounter each other the next day and fall in love. They plan to flee from Naples and the group. Hanspeter, who had planned to propose to Gisela at a restaurant, hears that she has fled to Germany with Gennaro.

Having arrived at the railway station of Oberhausen, Gisela and Gennaro have nowhere to stay. Sitting on a bank, Gisela falls asleep and has a series of nightmare dreams. Suddenly Hanspeter and his friends appear and attack the couple. During the fight we see in the background Mount Vesuvius exploding and pouring its lava on stage.
