L'enfant et les sortilèges

Following the breath-taking success of the Magic Flute, which has set out from Berlin to take the whole world by storm, the British theatre group »1927« is returning to the Komische Oper Berlin – with two works which seem almost to have been written for the absolutely boundless imaginations of these image-conjurers and their astonishing combination of animation and live performances by actors...

Die Zauberflöte in South Korea

Don Giovanni

Don Juan, the epitome of the seducer, inspired Mozart to one of his most influential operas – frivolous, witty and profound all at once. In his version of Don Giovanni,director Herbert Fritsch »abandons the formal, virtuoso arrangement of nonsense« and »thereby gives the audience freedom of interpretation« [FAZ]. In doing so, he draws on the core of Don Juan and brings him to new life as a malicious harlequin – a loser, audacious, side-splittingly funny and irresistible all at once, framed by the delicate, utterly dark pinnacle of Mozartean music. A »fascinating and intelligent interpretation removed from all platitudes« [klassik.com].

Die Perlen der Cleopatra

Julius Brammer and Alfred Grünwald have laced their libretto for the Viennese-born Oscar Strauss – who also enjoys success in Berlin – with sharp wit and cheeky double entendres. In the guise of light-hearted and frivolous entertainment, with music somewhere between cabaret, jazz, late romanticism and a dose of bliss courtesy of the Viennese waltz, The Pearls of Cleopatra is a witty satire on middle-class conservatism and a farsighted commentary on the then already impending political ills of the 1920s.

Premiere! Blaubart

The Barbe-bleue (Bluebeard) of this fairytale can be etymologically traced to the old French word Barbeu (werewolf), who might in turn reveal himself as a sheep in wolf’s clothing. The success of Bluebeard in decadent Paris during the dawning of the second imperial era is rooted in precisely this interplay between horror and comedy – one laughs at one’s own inadequacy as if one had already internalised Karl Kraus’ dictum: »Love and art do not embrace what is beautiful but what is made beautiful by this embrace.«

“A performance of such rapturous, fantastic, colourful vitality that it snatches away the fog from your ears and eyes, and you experience nothing less than the birth of theatre.” [Die Zeit] Barrie Kosky’s powerful and colourful staging of Orpheus – one of our most popular productions – begins as a boisterous festival of music and love in an Arcadian paradise. It goes on to tell the story of Orpheus' journey through the underworld as a voyage into himself. The unusual new instrumentation by the Uzbekistan composer Elena Kats-Chernin is also a colourful touch. “An unreal, magic world, artificial and enchanting at the same time – Dionysian.” [Berliner Zeitung]

Carmen

Carmen is everything: femme fatale, mage, political activist, harbinger of death and priestess of love. The entanglements of the soldier Don José, who lets himself be carried through the hurricane of love with body, soul and jealousy, are staged by Sebastian Baumgarten as a crime thriller in the ruins of a contemporary world, characterised by poverty, crisis and death – and yet laced with an indomitable spirit:  "... strange and shrill – at times comically over the top, at others melodramatically serious. Sebastian Baumgarten has achieved a production of Carmen which is truly unique." [NDR]

Carmen

Carmen is everything: femme fatale, mage, political activist, harbinger of death and priestess of love. The entanglements of the soldier Don José, who lets himself be carried through the hurricane of love with body, soul and jealousy, are staged by Sebastian Baumgarten as a crime thriller in the ruins of a contemporary world, characterised by poverty, crisis and death – and yet laced with an indomitable spirit:  "... strange and shrill – at times comically over the top, at others melodramatically serious. Sebastian Baumgarten has achieved a production of Carmen which is truly unique." [NDR]

Die Zauberflöte

The Komische Oper Berlin's production of The Magic Flute, »a deliciously absurd mixture of silent film and cartoon« [Berliner Morgenpost], has caused a furore, and not just in Berlin: in Los Angeles, Minneapolis and at the Deutsche Oper am Rhein, it received euphoric acclaim both from audiences and the press. »Barrie Kosky has transformed The Magic Flute into a stunning live-action cartoon, so bewitching as to silence every criticism.« [Los Angeles Times] »You are amazed by the perfection, you laugh in appreciation of the virtuoso design behind each of these scenes ... Breath-taking!« [taz]

Peter Pan by Richard Ayres

 

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.
