Ten acts in ten hours and a programme for young and old, families, children, big kids and night owls! THE FLYING DUTCHMAN is Richard Wagner's shortest opera and accordingly there is much that does not appear in the play: stories, songs, music, dances, texts. In extended version: THE FLYING DUTCHMAN all this comes up, curated and staged by author and director Jan Koslowski. In continuation of the successful series AUS DEM HINTERHALT, he has invited numerous artists from genres beyond the world of opera to work together with singers and musicians from the ensembles of Deutsche Oper to take a close look at what is probably Wagner's most popular opera, to work on material from it, to question it critically, to draw inspiration from it and to rewrite it from today's perspective - in order to bring to the stage everything that is not experienced in the original.

The result is an "extended version" of ten hours duration, divided into three parts. The second programme block, starting at 6 pm, will be opened by the two performance artists Magdalena Mitterhofer and Shade Théret, followed by two concerts by this year's Tischlerei scholarship holders of the Musicboard Berlin. With their storytelling performance "Meryem's Ballad", the German-Turkish band Babelfis, together with soprano Anna Schoeck, will juxtapose one of the best-known pieces from Wagner's opera, the Senta Ballad, with a completely different female fate and thus an alternative concept of femininity. Afterwards, the programme of the Cameroonian-born Berlin musician Steve Mekoudja can be experienced under the title "Freedom" - with a ten-piece band, dancers and background choir.
