Martin Muehle … My private place of peace
PIQUE DAME – Opening night on 9 March 2024

Martin Muehle … My private place of peace

"I’m looking forward to singing Herman in Tchaikovsky’s PIQUE DAME. It’s my first contact with Tchaikovsky. I’m looking to lay bare all Herman’s tragedy and melancholy on the stage of the Deutsche Oper Berlin. I adore the richness and romance of the music and the link to Russian culture really comes across – I feel it on a soulful level. The Deutsche Oper Berlin will be involving me in the gestation of the production from the start and that’s a real privilege. There’ll be a lot of rehearsing, but the role will be tailored to me and that may raise the quality of my performance. Art takes time." This is what Martin Muehle says about his work here. Read here in the blog why the Mannheim Rose Garden is his soul place.

Six questions for ... Hanna Schwarz
PIQUE DAME – Opening night on 9 March 2024

Six questions for ... Hanna Schwarz

"The old countess would be some kind of hippie today.She’s had a rambunctious past life in Paris, with free love, outside the strictures of marriage. Now she’s come back to her roots and is having trouble slotting back into bourgeois society. She knows her next lover will be her last, which means every flirt with Herman is also a flirt with Death. The act of love as the stroke of death symbolises her being drawn to the abyss." The legendary mezzo-soprano Hanna Schwarz sings the Countess in PIQUE DAME - a dazzling lady who guards a card secret.

Federica Lombardi – My seat of contentment
ANNA BOLENA – 11., 16., 19. März 2024

Federica Lombardi – My seat of contentment

"The opera houses of the world are where I feel most contented. The at-home feeling I get from opera houses comes from my having basically grown up in them as an artist. They’re a reminder of how I came to be the soprano I am today. Another reason the houses have a big significance for me is that a little family kind of materialises around each production. Obviously they’re not standing in for my own family, but while I’m away from my nearest and dearest my opera family makes sure that I get a feeling of belonging" - says Federica Lombardi, who will once again take on the role of Anna Bolena in March. She will be joined by Riccardo Fassi, Jana Kurucová, Christian Simmons, Xabier Anduaga, Arianna Manganello and Kangyoon Shine Lee. Daniele Squeo conducts.

Beta

Technical innovations have long since permeated all areas of life. The world premiere BETA illuminates the potential of digital tools, but also the risks posed by non-transparent data sets and the monetisation of private user data. In her composition, Dariya Maminova artfully interweaves genres, mixes live sound with complex electronics and repeatedly plays with the boundaries of our perception of analogue and digitally produced music.

Parsifal
25 February; 3, 8 March 2024

Parsifal

In the story about the "pure fool", Philipp Stölzl places questions about the fanaticism of hermetic religious communities at the centre of his interpretation: an anti-Enlightenment world view, belief in miracles, the violent exclusion of outsiders are themes that he shapes in tableaux vivants as a time travel through two millennia... Conductor: Sir Donald Runnicles; Director: Philipp Stölzl; With Jordan Shanahan, Günther Groissböck, Klaus Florian Vogt, Joachim Goltz, Irene Roberts a. o.

Der Ring des Nibelungen
Three cycles from 11 May to 2 June 2024

Der Ring des Nibelungen

A group of people meet a grand piano on an empty stage, a note is struck, and slowly a world of fantasy, longing and intoxication unfolds, captivating everyone and fusing them into a community. This is how DAS RHEINGOLD, directed by Stefan Herheim, begins, true to Wagner's core idea of creating a modern equivalent to the community-building power of Greek theatre. On the four evenings, Herheim creates an arc that leads through stations in the performance history and finally into the foyer of the Deutsche Oper with its cloud sculpture.

Wagner’s heroic figures
PARSIFAL – 25 February; 3, 8 March 2024

Wagner’s heroic figures

There is always redemption with Wagner. Sometimes a woman releases a man from his torment (TANNHÄUSER, THE FLYING DUTCHMAN), sometimes a man a woman from hers (PARSIFAL), sometimes death redeems everyone (TRISTAN) and sometimes it’s the world as a whole that’s in need of renewal (THE RING OF THE NIBELUNG). It’s hardly surprising that the last words ever set to music by Wagner were »Redemption for the Redeemer« in PARSIFAL’s closing chorus ... Jörg Königsdorf, Head Dramaturg at the Deutsche Oper Berlin, on one of the maestro’s pet themes in our blog.
