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". A magnificent tour de force it features the operetta dream-team of Dagmar Manzel and Max Hopp taking on 30 different roles for the production…

Richard Wagner

The Master Singers of Nuremberg

Opera in three acts
Absolute art! But only according to the rules! Rules which, in the opinion of the wise master-singer Sachs, should be regularly checked by ordinary citizens so that art does not lose its connection with the audience. Without doubt the most folksy opera in his oeuvre, Wagner's ingeniously humorous satire The Master Singers of Nuremberg also has its rightful place in the repertoire of the Komische Oper Berlin.
Antonín Dvořák

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.

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.

Lyrical tale in three acts (1901)

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
