Otto Schenk dips his love potion production into a warm, southern light: Here the story of Adina and Nemorino is told, which has always been one of Donizetti's greatest successes. With a loving eye, the composer designed an ironic village idyll with precisely drawn types, whose happiness and pain he always takes touchingly seriously.

The story of the Flying Dutchman goes back to motifs from ancient sailor tales that are spread all over the world, such as those of the death ship, the ghost, ghost or hell ship. The core motive is always the curse of eternal sailing for a guilty captain..

A dancer writes a longing in the room. It is a solo of flowing serenity, unfolding over those gentle waves of sound with which the famous "On the beautiful blue Danube" begins before it begins to turn into a waltz, repeatedly drawing strength into those nerve-tickling delays that are so are typical of music that, like no other, represents everything that one associates with »Vienna«. ..

It is one of the best-known comedy films in the world: Here the elderly bachelor who wants to preserve his assets and who wants to slip into the role of the lover again. There the young woman who cleverly leads him by the nose. In Don Pasquale, Donizetti skilfully set up this framework: the opera is burlesque, but also timelessly valid as a conflict between patriarchal wishes and youthful self-determination. Director Irina Brook puts the comedy into the present, quickly leading it into an exaggerated, candy-colored finale, in which people should laugh - but never just laugh at them.

The action takes place in the time of the Christian reconquista on the partly Arab-occupied Spanish peninsula. The men's association of the Grail Knights operating there has fallen into crisis. Because knights desert again and again into the counter-realm of the magician Klingsor, who had emasculated himself in his pursuit of sexual asceticism and had previously been rejected by the circle of knights...

“Heaven wants it: I am yours;
Winning you was my life
Only one pledge, on and on:
God himself gave you to me
You are my refuge right up to the grave ... "

Rarely has a work hit Vienna with such immediacy as Johann Strauss ’" Die Fledermaus ". From the first performance in 1874 onwards, the piece was performed with the highest number of performances, in 1894 it was honored with court operas, and since then has remained in the repertoire almost continuously and since 1900 almost always on New Year's Eve. The most famous of all operettas approaches variations of erotic and social disguise with a happy and light hand and makes the bourgeois facades dance, including political and social comments.
