Die Zauberflöte in Beijing

  • Beijing China

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!«

Die Perlen der Cleopatra by Oscar Strauss (Operetta)

  • Komische Oper Berlin

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.

Orpheus

  • Komische Oper Berlin

“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

  • Komische Oper Berlin

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]
