Introductory matinee
«L'italina in Algeri»

Already with his first full-length buffa opera in 1813, the young Rossini sparked a Europe-wide Rossini euphoria. Two weeks before our premiere, with a prominent cast including Cecilia Bartoli and Lawrence Brownlee, some of the people involved give insights into the production in an interview with dramaturg Kathrin Brunner.

We offer introductory matinees to accompany every new production: in conversation with our dramatic advisers, conductors, directors, set and costume designers explain their view of the works in question. On a Sunday morning a week or two before the première, you will thus gain direct insights into the peculiarities of the production.
