Giacomo Meyerbeer worked on L'Africaine, later Vasco de Gama, from 1837 until shortly before his death in 1864. +Following his passing, an examination of the existing material introduced changes and greatly abridged the work, subsequently staged as L'Africaine. +The modern critical edition by scholar Jürgen Schläder formed the basis of this studio production of the acclaimed 2013 Vasco de Gama production and now for the first time enables a hearing of the composer's true intentions.
