Mozart Festival 2022

From 15 to 18 April 2022 at the Semperoper Dresden

On Easter weekend 2022, the Semperoper will present Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s three »Da Ponte« operas, performed by a brilliant cast of singers under the baton of the Semperoper’s principal guest conductor and Mozart specialist, Omer Meir Wellber.

Mozart’s collaboration with the librettist and writer Lorenzo Da Ponte between 1785 and 1790 produced three genuine masterpieces, whose psychologically astute plotting and vividly drawn characters as well as the subtle and profound linking of text and music prepared the way for the music dramas of the 19th century. Lorenzo Da Ponte, one of the most interesting figures of the late 18th and early 19th centuries, not only wrote more than 30 opera libretti: he was also a poet, a priest and a free spirit, who eventually emigrated to America and whose adventure-filled life is recounted in his memoirs.
