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.

The Pearls of Cleopatra

Operetta in three acts
Libretto by Julius Brammer and Alfred Grünwald
Dagmar Manzel and Dominique Horwitz spirit us away to ancient Egypt, where things have a mighty strong flavour of Berlin to them. After bringing us Ball at the Savoy and A woman who knows what she wants!, conductor Adam Benzwi and head director Barrie Kosky conjure another absurd and turbulent piece of fun theatre onto the stage of the Komische Oper Berlin.

Rusalka

Lyrical tale in three acts
Barrie Kosky’s darkly romantic interpretation of the Czech fairytale material conjures up sensual, powerful images which followed the melancholy poetry of Dvořák’s music and irresistibly captivate the audience.
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart

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.

CHILDREN'S OPERA IN TWO ACTS [2013]
Flying children in Neverland! The renowned English composer Richard Ayres has taken James M. Barrie's famous story of the boy who never wants to grow up and set it to music which is at times sensitive and emotional, at other times powerfully zippy, transforming it into a piece of furioso musical theatre for the whole family.

Operetta in two acts [1923]

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.
A tenor, a soprano and three musicians travel around Europe on the Gastarbeiterroute –the road people who worked in Germany or Austria took to travel to their counties of origin during holidays. Berlin – Munich – Vienna – Belgrad – Sofia – Istanbul
