Lucio Silla

DRAMMA PER MUSICA IN THREE ACTS
After Il re pastore last season, Lucio Silla represents another early work in a series of concertante performances of Mozart operas. The composer, aged just 16 at the time this piece was written, has already discovered how to pack this opera seria with magnificent arias, which are in no way inferior to those of his later masterpieces!

TANGO OPERITA IN 16 PICTURES
The tango combines passion and melancholy, pride and longing, but above all it offers one thing: unbounded sensuality! Anyone who surrenders to the tango forgets everything around him.

Gianni Schicchi | Bluebeard's Castle

TWO ONE ACT
Two masterpieces of the 20th century, both premiered in that fateful year 1918. The works could hardly be more different, and yet they are combined to form an operatic double bill - black Italian comedy meets Hungarian psycho-drama, staged by the Spanish director Calixto Bieito, master of the dark and the unfathomable.

Giorgio Madia stages this legend as a piece of irresistibly seductive, intimate baroque theatre in modern form. 
Barrie Kosky’s celebrated production, winner of the most important British theatre prize, the Laurence Olivier Award, can now also be experienced at the Komische Oper Berlin with new staging.
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.
