Sung in German

stigmatized_lao13The Stigmatized (Die Gezeichneten, 1918) is the best known work by Franz Schreker, one of the most important and successful opera composers of the early 20th century, who fell into obscurity after the rise of the Nazi regime. The Stigmatized is a rapturously evocative late-Romantic tragedy in which an unlikely love triangle plays out on a paradise pleasure island amidst a group of decadent nobles who are marked by lust and depravity.
