Aida – Making-of (2)

Talk with Christian Thielemann and Katharina Thalbach

The Principal Conductor of the Sächsische Staatskapelle Dresden has never conducted Giuseppe Verdi’s »Aida« – he describes himself as an »Aida novice«. But it is not only Christian Thielemann who tries to inspire the audience with Verdi’s sounds, stage director Katharina Thalbach also wants to seduce with her production. In our second part of the »Aida«-making-of, the two met for a conversation in the lower church of the Frauenkirche.
