Semperoper summer break

Szene aus der Oper »Die Nase«

Our summer break starts on 16 July and we will be back on 29 August with the concert of the Gustav Mahler Jugendorchester under the baton of Herbert Blomstedt in the Frauenkirche Church.

Also right at the beginning of the season, the AI opera »chasing waterfalls« has its world premiere on 3 September. The opera deals in an unusual way with the influence and significance of Artificial Intelligence on our lives, but also on art production itself. Experience how the Semperoper is transformed into an experimental studio and how, for the first time, Artificial Intelligence composes, writes poetry and sings on an opera stage.

We wish you a restful summer and are already looking forward to our next season 2022/23!
