Chamber opera in one act based on the play by Eugène Ionesco Performed in German


Dear audience members

We can perform for you again! 

And we are delighted to offer some exciting events over the coming weeks. In particular, you can enjoy two special premieres: firstly, the German premiere of Luciano Chailly’s chamber opera »The Bald Soprano« in Semper Zwei, staged by the young director Barbora Horáková; and secondly, the long-awaited world premiere of Torsten Rasch’s new opera »Die andere Frau« (»The Other Wife«) with an outstanding cast of singers and a truly thrilling visual concept. 

Nevertheless, this »reopening« is still under the shadow of the coronavirus pandemic. For the time being, we are only able to present a limited programme. And, of course, all hygiene rules, entry restrictions and reduced seating plans continue to be applied in compliance with current regulations – to ensure that we all stay safe. 

While accepting these constraints, we look forward to sharing some inspiring opera and concert experiences with you. 
With my warmest regards and best wishes for your health!
