Johannes Brahms: Ein deutsches Requiem

A new era begins: In September, Gianandrea Noseda takes up his new position as General Music Director of the Opernhaus Zürich. But he is already giving his artistic business card with a major musical project: The Italian conductor will perform the massive Deutsche Requiem by Johannes Brahms with the Philharmonia Zurich and the Zurich Opera Choir.

On 4 September, we will put the individual tickets for the September performances on sale. Whether the performances for October and the following months will go on sale at that time will be decided at the end of August.

On 25 August we will go on sale with single tickets for the popular performances of L'incoronazione di Poppea and I Capuleti e i Montecchi as well as for the introductory matinee Salome.

You’re invited to join us to celebrate the new season with a flashy cultural firework display on September 11 & 12!
