Trailer «Lessons in Love and Violence»

«Lessons in Love and Violence» explores an unleashed love between men and its destructive dimensions. The material on which the opera is based was written by Christopher Marlowe, one of Shakespeare's contemporaries, who brought queer love to the theater stage for possibly the first time ever.


Trailer «Monteverdi»

«Only someone as high-class as [Ballett Zürich] is capable of dancing Monteverdi like this: as Christian Spuck's most personal, intimate choreography.»

Song recital

Sabine Devieilhe

As Lakmé in three concert performances of the opera of the same name by Léo Delibes, Sabine Devieilhe drew ovations from the Zurich audience in April and more than lived up to her reputation as an exquisite coloratura soprano and one of the most versatile interpreters of our time. Before she performs Susanna in the new production of Mozart's Le nozze di Figaro at the Salzburg Festival this summer, she will give a song recital at Zurich Opera House. Accompanied by Mathieu Pordoy, Sabine Devieilhe takes an extended excursion into the German-language song repertoire.
