Director Barrie Kosky presents Offenbach's surreal and fantastical story as the disturbing nightmare of an artist who is in danger of losing ever more of his own self ... Watch the trailer here!
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
»I wanted to make sure that everyone looks at the coming season and asks, how the hell are they going to do that.«
Barrie Kosky
