Recommendations for your trip - Christmas time and New Year's Eve

Recommendations for your trip - Christmas time and New Year's Eve

Combine your visit to the Semperoper with a visit to the traditional Striezelmarkt in Dresden. The Christmas market opens from November 28th till December 24th and celebrate this year its 584th anniversary. Besides the Striezelmarkt you can visit one of the many, tiny, beautiful Christmas markets that illuminate Dresden in the Christmas season (in the Stallhof, with its historical character, at the Frauenkirche, at the Neumarkt or in Dresden-Loschwitz). The historical Saxony Steam Cruise Company offers during the Christmas season also several  trips along the river Elbe. For those who would like to discover the area around Dresden, the Christmas market in Radebeul-Altkötzschenbroda and the Schloss Wackerbarth are a pleasure for the eyes as well as for the senses.

Many of Dresden’s museums remain open to visitors on public holidays. You can soak up the atmosphere of the medieval Christmas market in the Stallhof in Dresden Castle until the end of the year. Moritzburg Castle is located about 15 km from Dresden. You can organize a tour of the castle for your guests, explore the nearby Fasanenschlößchen (Little Pheasant Castle), take a horse-drawn sleigh ride (weather permitting) through the Moritzburg woods and visit the local game reserve. Nestled amongst the vineyards of Radebeul, Schloss Wackerbarth is a Baroque castle located in the district of Niederlößnitz. The Saxon State Winery, which produces both still and sparkling wines, welcomes guests for both guided tours and tastings. With a history stretching back a thousand years, the nearby town of Meissen is internationally renowned for its china. The manufacture of this first European porcelain began there in 1710. If you are interested, we can send additional tips and personal recommendations to make your guests’ stay in Dresden at the turn of the year 2018/19 an unforgettable experience.

Christian Thielemann – overview of appearances in the 2018/19 season

Christian Thielemann – overview of appearances in the 2018/19 season

For the new production of »Ariadne auf Naxos« (premiere on 2 December 2018) Christian Thielemann will be on the podium at the Semperoper.
»Ariadne auf Naxos« is an opera about opera, about fidelity and change as well as the transforming power of love: When a rich man books a private performance of an opera in his house, he is only able to bear the earnestness of the piece when interspersed with a comedy. And so the grief of the abandoned Ariadne clashes with the comedienne Zerbinetta.
Together with principal conductor Christian Thielemann, the Staatskapelle Dresden previously performed »Ariadne auf Naxos« to great acclaim at the Baden-Baden Festival of 2012.

Overview of the current conducting appearances of Christian Thielemann in the season 2018/19:

Opera »Ariadne auf Naxos«

Ballet highlights in autumn and winter 2018

Ballet highlights in autumn and winter 2018

»Labyrinth«
With the premiere of the four-part ballet evening »Labyrinth« on 3 November 2018 the Semperoper Ballet takes the audience deeply into the labyrinth of human psyche. Following George Balanchine’s work »The Four Temperaments«, an examination of the medieval concept of man’s four humours, Martha Graham vividly exposes the path into the labyrinth (»Errand into the Maze«) of human emotions and fears. Ohad Naharin, on the other hand, dedicates himself to the underlying archaic structures of human feeling in »Black Milk«, before dancer and  choreographer Joseph Hernandez’s latest work creates a vision of a new world.

Mon 3 November 2018, 1. p.m., price category B: 25 – 52 €
