The Abduction from the Seraglio / Premiere: 17. June 2016

The realisation that THE ABDUCTION FROM THE SERAGLIO was a more significant work than the “musical comedy” label suggested was not long in coming. Not only did the commissioner of the piece, Emperor Joseph II, comment with some puzzlement after the 1784 premiere in Vienna that there were “too many notes”; three years later Goethe, too, responded to the success of Mozart’s piece by questioning his own dabblings in German-language musical comedies. ABDUCTION soon came to be seen as the primordial German opera, the first successful attempt to create a qualitatively comparable German alternative to the affective language of Italian opera. This is especially true of the emotional depth of the characters. Setting the story in an alien, exotic country, which severs Belmonte and Konstanze from all external social influences, Mozart is able to express musically the fundamental question of interpersonal relations: am I so in love that I want to spend the rest of my life with this other person? And do I know myself well enough to commit to the relationship with a clean conscience?

ABDUCTION has inspired a string of accomplished directors to stage the work, especially as its interplay of spoken dialogue and music makes it more tolerant of textual adaptations than through-composed operas are. One of Europe’s most exciting and uncompromising theatre directors is now coming to the Deutsche Oper Berlin, where he has chosen THE ABDUCTION FROM THE SERAGLIO as the piece with which to make his debut in the genre of musical theatre. Argentinian Rodrigo Garcia has been feted internationally for plays such as “Gólgota Picnic”. In Berlin he has directed at the Schaubühne.

Underline / Premiere: 16. June 2016

Over 100 years since the publication of the futuristic novel "Flatland", UNDERLINE turns E. A. Abbott’s satirical utopia into a new music theatre. In the associative, multidimensional and polyphonic composition of materials, images, forms, bodies, movements, light, videos, sound and music, UNDERLINE evolves from motives, conflicts, characters and narrative elements of the novel into a kinetic sculpture as musical object theatre.

“Flatland” is the autobiographical story of A Square, an inhabitant of Flatland. In his story he describes his two-dimensional world and reports of his journeys to regions of less and more dimensions, challenging the boundaries and limitations of his perception. What was once the novel’s fantastic vision of the future to criticize its Victorian society, is still serving as a valid analogy of our present time – Scene and music show human bodies, sets, materials and props as fitted objects and appropriated instruments in a geometrical performance. UNDERLINE will place the audience in the position of the novel’s protagonist by letting them view spaces beyond imagination and thereby stimulates us to reflect on the limitations of our own.

UNDERLINE is a co-production between the Deutsche Oper Berlin and the Munich Biennale, the international festival for new musical theatre. It is the first collaboration between New York video artist and director Deville Cohen and the Mexican-born composer Hugo Morales, a resident of the Netherlands. Morales is known among other things for his extraordinary sound machines and his incorporation of found objects and technology into his compositions.

A collaboration with Münchener Biennale – Internationales Festival für neues Musiktheater and with Universität der Künste Berlin

Following our successful release of Giacomo Meyerbeer’s opera Vasco da Gama, a production awarded the Echo Prize for the Best Editorial Achievement of 2015, we are now also eager to present to you another opera by the same composer. Most opera fans know Meyerbeer’s Dinorah only from a single recording. For a long time it was the interpretation of the madness aria »Ombre legère« by Maria Callas that earned its title figure mention as the sister of other great opera heroines like Donizetti’s Lucia, Amina from Bellini’s Sonnambula, and Ophelia from the Hamlet of Ambroise Thomas: she too flees from a world that no longer understands her and seeks refuge in madness. In its complete form, however, the opéra comique Dinorah ou Le Pardon de Ploërmel continues to await discovery. Here Meyerbeer, late in his life, succeeds in producing playful, poetic, and humorously ironic evocations of the world of romantic spirits and fairies. Meyerbeer’s setting of the story focusing on the lovers Dinorah and Hoël, separated under mysterious circumstances during a pilgrimage and then happily reunited, mixes lyrical, folkloric, and comical elements lending the music a subtle color palette all of its own.
