OPERETTA IN TWO ACTS
Hungary in the Wild West! Katharine Mehrling as the resolute rancher with Hungarian roots in Emmerich Kálmán‘s Western operetta – premiered posthumously and here performed in Berlin for the very first time!
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.

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.

Musical in German and English

West Side Story

BASED ON AN IDEA BY JEROME ROBBINS
Driving rhythms and hauntingly beautiful songs make Leonard Bernstein’s version of Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet one of the most moving works of musical theatre in the 20th century. The subject of the piece is prejudice, fear, hatred – and hope that somewhere, somehow, some time, things could be different.

The Bat

OPERETTA COMIQUE IN THREE ACTS
Stefan Soltesz, the Austrian conductor of Hungarian origin who has for many years been General Musical Director of the Essen Philharmonic and General Artistic Director of the Aalto Theatre, conducts this operetta of operettas, this masterpiece by the king of the waltz. It is a work of wit and high jinks, full of enchanting melodies which, once heard, can never be forgotten.

Opéra-bouffe in three acts (1864)

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.
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.
