Yuval Sharon

Erfahrungen als Assistent sammelte der junge Regisseur Yuval Sharon unter anderem 2002 bei SAINT FRANÇOIS D’ASSISE an der Deutschen Oper Berlin, bei AIDA bei den Bregenzer Festspielen 2009, bei DIE SACHE MAKROPULOS am Marientheater St. Petersburg, bei Achim Freyers RING in Los Angeles und bei Stockhausens MITTWOCH AUS LICHT in Birmingham 2012. Seine erste Inszenierung lieferte Yuval Sharon 2003 beim Ensemble Theater Faction mit der ORESTIE, der im Jahr 2004 Falk Richters GOD IS A DJ folgte. An der San Francisco Opera war er 2007 erfolgreich mit einer ZAUBERFLÖTE FÜR FAMILIEN und in Palo Alto inszenierte er 2010 den FREISCHÜTZ.

Hauptsächlich machte er sich einen Namen mit zeitgenössischen Stoffen. So brachte er im Sommer 2010 in Los Angeles die Oper MORTAL THOUGHTS OF LADY MACBETH von Veronika Krausas heraus und inszenierte 2011 die Uraufführung DER SOLDIER SONGS von David T. Little in New York. Mit der Gründung der freien Theatergruppe „The Industry“ in Los Angeles und der Uraufführung von Anne Le Barons Hyperopera CRESCENT CITY lenkte er überregionales Aufsehen auf die Möglichkeiten freien Musiktheaters in den USA. Mit Jessye Norman, Meredith Monk und Joan La Barbara schuf er 2013 die SONG BOOKS von John Cage, die in Miami, San Francisco und in der Carnegie Hall gezeigt wurden. Seine Hauptprojekte bei „The Industry“ waren 2013 der Workshop für sechs neue Opern FIRST TAKE im Hammer Museum und die Uraufführung der Oper INVISIBLE CITIES von Christopher Cerrone nach Italo Calvino in der Union Station, die bei laufendem Bahnhofsbetrieb über Kopfhörer stattfand (Premiere Oktober 2013). Im Mai 2014 hat er DAS SCHLAUE FÜCHSLEIN in Cleveland mit Franz Welser-Möst inszeniert.

Adventskalender im Foyer: Das 1. Fensterchen

Today in the foyer: "An American Christmas"
Favourite songs from North and South America
with Julie Wyma, Valeria Delmé and Jamison Livsey
5.00 p.m. / Rank foyer on the right
Duration: approx. 25 minutes / free admission

From the frosty north of Alaska to the southernmost tip of Chile, from Buenos Aires to New York City - the Advent season is celebrated across the entire American double continent. But there are huge differences in how Christmas is celebrated. This diversity is also reflected in the music that precedes and accompanies the festivities. While the Argentinian composer Ariel Ramírez takes up the lively rhythms of South American dances in his cantata "Navidad Nuestra" ("Our Christmas"), songs such as "White Christmas" or "I'll Be Home for Christmas" succeed in translating the contemplative into the popular in a unique way. Join sopranos Julie Wyma and Valeria Delmé and pianist Jamison Livsey on a journey through the musical realms on the other side of the Atlantic.

Julie Wyma comes from the USA and studied at the universities of Indiana, Missouri and Arizona. Numerous performances on the opera and concert stage have taken her throughout the USA and Europe. Since the 2021/22 season, she has been a member of the Deutsche Oper Berlin chorus as 1st soprano, where she not only sings in the major choral operas with her colleagues, but also takes on a solo role as La Conversa in SUOR ANGELICA. In addition to her work as a singer, Julie Wyma is also active as a singing teacher, costume designer and director.

Valeria Delmé was born in Buenos Aires and gained her first musical experience at an early age, including as a soloist in the children's chorus of the Teatro Colón. This was followed by further opera performances on various stages in Argentina and training at the Conservatorio Superior de Música "Manuel de Falla" before she began performing regularly in Germany in 2017. Valeria Delmé now sings as 2nd soprano in the chorus of the Deutsche Oper Berlin.

The pianist and conductor Jamison Livsey studied at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, Michigan. In 2016, he conducted a premiere of TURN OF THE SCREW in Tel Aviv. He has worked as a répétiteur with conducting engagements at many opera companies, including Minnesota Opera, Chautauqua Opera, Sarasota Opera, Opera Cleveland, Anchorage Opera, Opera in Williamsburg, Toledo Opera, Sugar Creek Symphony and Song, Pine Mountain Music Festival and Opera North. He has also appeared with these opera companies as a harpsichordist and orchestral pianist with a repertoire ranging from Monteverdi and Rossini to the present day. He has worked as a guest conductor at Opera Santa Barbara. He is also active as a Lied accompanist, including for Vivica Genaux. At the Deutsche Oper Berlin, he works as a répétiteur in the chorus.
