New Productions in Europe - January 2010

Undoubtedly the most expected is the new production of "Rienzi" by Philipp Stoelzl which will open on Sunday, January 24 at the Deutsche Oper Berlin (DOB), conducted by young & talented  Sebastian Lang-Lessing (replacing V. Jurowski tho!).
The cast looks good on paper too:  Torsten Kerl, Kate Aldrich, Camilla Nylund... and we should not forget the DOB Choir which Opernwelt Magazine voted as "Choir of the Year 2009" [Yours Truly will never forget their absolutely astounding performance in Tannhauser!].

One week later, in Freiburg will premiere the Calixto Bieito's production of "Le Grand Macabre" which I am more than sorry not to be able to see...

Other interesting new productions :
So at the end we are left with 7 true and truly interesting new productions. 


  1. Hello, just a correction about Teatro Real's Der fliegende Hollander, the production was premiered on April 2007. Alex Rigola is a catalan theater director...

    My impression about the production was not good...

  2. Thank you Mei! My bad. You won't believe me if I tell you this was the ONLY one entry I didn't double check...
    Too bad the production isn't good; the cast is definitely a top notch.
