La Bohème

It is a frigid winter in Paris; the moon shines over the roofs of the city. But the virtues of art and romance warm the hearts of the young bohemians, just like the music of Puccini feeds the audience's soul.

 

The Lion Tamer

"He snores, he roars, he is the world's greatest lion!" Liontamer is a fun new opera fairy tale incorporating familiar melodies from Mozart, Donizetti, Rossini, Verdi, Bizet and Puccini.

Upcoming performance: Sat 10 May 2014 11:00 Upper foyer

 

Der Rosenkavalier

With its orchestral colours and enticing melodies, Der Rosenkavalier exudes Viennese elegance, making it one of Richard Strauss' most popular operas.

 

Saaristo-ooppera: Trouble in Tahiti

The Saaristo-ooppera ('Archipelago opera') company will be visiting with performances of the jazzy mini-opera Trouble in Tahiti by Leonard Bernstein.

 

La voix humaine & The Bear

A double bill of one-act operas dealing with large issues on a small scale. In La voix humaine, a breakup leads to tragedy, while in The Bear two people unexpectedly find each other. An evening with both heartache and liberating laughter.

 

Le nozze di Figaro

A tangled web of relationships set to one of Mozart's most brilliant scores produces a timeless comedy of human desires and emotions. The Marriage of Figaro is a perfect blend of text and music and a masterpiece in its genre.

 

Boris Godunov

Boris Godunov, seemingly secure as the Tsar of Russia, is plagued by ghosts from the past. Did he have the rightful heir to the throne killed? Modest Mussorgsky presents a powerful image of the Russian people during a time of turmoil.

 

Pelléas and Mélisande

Mélisande is a maiden discovered wandering in the forest. She finds a mysterious castle, where she tragically falls in love with the young Pelléas. Debussy's dreamlike symbolist opera is here given an enchantingly beautiful setting.

 

Il tabarro & I pagliacci

Two tales of the relationship between an ageing man and a young woman, and destructive jealousy. Il tabarro is a realistic story set on a riverboat. In I pagliacci, the action is set in the world of theatre, where everything is possible.

Upcoming performance: Wed 12 Nov 2014 19:00 (sold)

 

Die Fledermaus

Die Fledermaus is a classic operetta thanks to its energetically bubbling music. Marco Arturo Marelli's new production shows that even an old warhorse can reveal new aspects of itself.

 

La Bohème (2014-2015)

It is a frigid winter in Paris; the moon shines over the roofs of the city. But the virtues of art and romance warm the hearts of the young bohemians, just like the music of Puccini feeds the audience's soul.

 

The Cunning Little Vixen

Leoš Janáček's The Cunning Little Vixen is an insightful study about the relationship between the restrictions of human life and the freedom of the animal kingdom.

 

Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg

Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg is a grandiose opera by Wagner setting a good-humoured story about the encounter of old and new worlds.
