An immersive music experience

«Amerika» is an opera beyond five staff lines and five acts. 66 loudspeakers, a live orchestra and three additional recorded ones, spoken chants, breakdancers, a phenomenal stage set, in short – a truly unique surround experience is being created. But how is such an immersive music experience written down, rehearsed and performed?


Discussion Concert

There will also be a second concert on the occasion of the new production Amerika: The Ensemble Opera Nova under the direction of Hans-Peter Achberger will tackle the ingenious madmen of American musical modernism in The Unanswered Question on March 21st.

Mar / Apr


Don't know it, never heard of it, what's that supposed to be? We have created a playlist for you with selected hits from our March and April program. 


Song recital

Rosa Feola

In recitals, you have the opportunity to experience opera singers in a completely different way - without costumes, without masks, pure, so to speak. In March, the Italian soprano Rosa Feola will be our guest, who last moved the audience in Zurich as Liù in Puccini's Turandot. In addition to songs, she will also present virtuoso opera arias: So if you don't want to miss out on dramatic scenes, then this is the evening for you.
