York Höller (°11/01/1944, Leverkusen) is a German composer and teacher of composition at the Musikhochschule in Cologne. In the years '70 he was a student of Karlheinz Stockhausen, one of the most controversial com-posers of the 20th century. Later he would succeed Stockhausen as artistic director of the WDR-Studios für elektronische Musik from 1990 to 1999. It gives an indication of the direction in which his work would develop: electronic, serial music asking quite some efforts from its listeners.

In 1989 Höller composed Der Meister und Margarita, an opera in two acts, which was premiered on May 20, 1989, in the Palais Garnier of the Opéra de Paris, the biggest opera building in the world where is situated the famous story of Le fantôme de l'opéra. Der Meister und Margarita by York Höller would be the last opera performed in the Palais Garnier, since the opera company would move to the Opéra de la Bastille after this perfor-mance.

On November 1, 1991, the opera had its German premiere in the famous Opernhaus in Cologne. Both the performance in Paris and in Cologne were conducted by Lothar Zagrosek.
