  • Der junge Lord is an opera in two acts by Hans Werner Henze to a German libretto by Ingeborg Bachmann, after Wilhelm Hauff's Der Affe als Mensch from Der Scheik von Alexandria und seine Sklaven. The style and plot owe much to Italian opera buffa, with the influence of Vincenzo Bellini and Gioachino Rossini noted. Andrew Porter has noted four distinct musical styles in the opera, corresponding to four different levels of characters: "neo-classical" style, for the townspeople; "neo-Straussian arioso", for Sir Edgar's entrance; a "wilder, more erratic" style, for the traveling circus; lyrical style, for Luise's love music. Robert Henderson has commented on the "Brechtian" nature of Bachmann and Henze's treatment of the story. Wikipedia
