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.
