Jacques Offenbach

La Belle Hélène

OPÉRA-BOUFFE IN THREE ACTS
Monty Python à la française – that’s Jacques Offenbach, the father of operetta, and master of satirical musical theatre. Barrie Kosky demonstrates a striking ability to have fun, which is as much a mark of the Komische Oper ensemble as the fantastic quality of their voices.

The Magic Flute

Grand Opera in two acts
The most performed German opera in a startling interpretation. The Magic Flute seems to throw up more questions and mysteries than it provides answers. By the end, all logic and reason fail before the immeasurable fantasy of this magic opera.

Marius Felix Lange

The Canterville Ghost

CREEPY OPERA IN TWO ACTS
Basing his opera on the deliciously spine-tingling story by Oscar Wilde about a classy castle ghost who is now getting on a bit, the Berlin composer Marius Felix Lange has created a creepy, ghostly atmosphere which is guaranteed to enthrall both young and old.
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart

Don Giovanni

DRAMMA GIOCOSO IN ZWEI AKTEN
Don Juan, the epitome of the seducer, inspired Mozart to one of his most influential operas. Frivolous, witty and profound all at once. The perfect opportunity for Herbert Fritsch, the master of theatrical folly, whose highly musical style of staging is tailor-made for this "light-hearted spectacle" about fatal passions.

Opera in three acts (1958/1960)

Giorgio Madia stages this legend as a piece of irresistibly seductive, intimate baroque theatre in modern form. 
Hollywood, South American passion and a dash of quirky Berlin humour are the ingredients of this wild farce, driven in highly enjoyable fashion by all manner of clichés – from the star of the silver screen in Greta Garbo mode to the intense revolution à la Che Guevara.
