Capriccio – Making-of (2)

Talk with director Jens-Daniel Herzog

In the second making-of trailer for our new production of »Capriccio«, director Jens-Daniel Herzog describes his thoughts on the last opera by Richard Strauss: written in the middle of the Second World War, the opera negotiates a dispute among theatre people. Did he want to escape from reality? Is escaping from the world sometimes necessary? And what does that mean for us today?

Premiere 8. May 2021
