Jewgeni Onegin

Lyrical scenes in three acts
Artistic director and head director Barrie Kosky takes on one of the greatest unhappy love stories of operatic literature: Tchaikovsky's Eugene Onegin. Following on from his comedic Don Giovanni in the previous season, baritone Günter Papendell once more proves his range as a vocalist and actor in the role of the titular hero who suffers as a result of his own arrogance.

Kiss me, Kate

Musical comedy in two acts [1948]
Cole Porter's sensational hit about love and petty jealousies on stage and behind the scenes in a dazzling, glittering show which director Barrie Kosky has himself described as a blend between Who's afraid of Virginia Woolf and The Muppets. Or to put it differently: »Friedrichstadt-Palast meets Christopher Street Day: the only thing which doesn't glitter here is bare skin. At the opening, the stage is a giant whirl of arms, legs, bosoms and six-packs.« [Der Tagesspiegel]
Oscar Straus

A woman knows what she wants!

MUSICAL COMEDY IN TWO ACTS
Oscar Straus‘s sparkling 1932 masterpiece was premiered at the legendary Metropol Theatre, which is today the Komische Oper Berlin, with Fritzi Massary in the leading role. Now this jewel among operettas, with the character of a chamber play, is "coming home".

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.

Fantasio

Opéra comique in three acts | Sung in French
A première after 125 years! For the first time, Offenbach's opéra comique Fantasio will sound the way the composer originally intended: with a tenor in the title role. Dominique Horwitz, an actor and chansonnier with French roots, leads us through the plot about an unhappy princess and her student admirer.

Ball at the Savoy - until October 15th ...

A captivating musical blend of Berlin jazz, Hungarian gypsy music, Viennese melodies and Yiddish klezmer, Ball at the Savoy tells a crazy story about a newly-married couple whose loyalty is put to the test.

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.
