Live Streaming

ring für alle

The international interest in our interpretation of Richard Wagner's Ring des Nibelungen is many times greater than our small house has seats for. For this reason, we are particularly pleased to be able to offer the second Ring cycle as streaming to those at home. The performances will be broadcast live from the opera house on 18, 20, 24 and 26 May and will remain available free of charge for a month afterwards.

Trailer «A Midsummer Night's Dream»

The British composer Benjamin Britten set Shakespeare's popular «A Midsummer Night's Dream» to music with an incredible joy of experimentation: in the realm of the fairies, we hear the baroque influence of Henry Purcell with harpsichord and countertenor, while folk and barbershop elements are used with the theatre-loving rustics.
