And this one - George Balanchine, who knew Robbins' work on Broadway and his talent very well - answered simply: "Come on!" That sealed an American success story: From now on Robbins was not only as ballet master at the side of Mr. B. Robbins , but also played a decisive role as a choreographer in the development of the New York City Ballet into one of the most important dance companies.
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 attractiveness of Margarethe Wallmann's »Tosca« production has remained unbroken since 1958. The production is given an additional symbolic charm by the impressive number of well-known artist personalities who, in precisely this direction, in precisely these decorations and in precisely these costumes, appeared in memorable performances in front of the Viennese audience...

Too good for our ears, and a huge number of notes, dear Mozart, "is what Joseph II is supposed to have said about" The Abduction from the Seraglio "- to which Mozart replied:" Just as many notes, Your Majesty, as are necessary. " Exchange of words - it can be found in the first Mozart biography published by Franz Xaver Niemetschek eight years after the composer's death - cannot be proven beyond doubt. Nevertheless, the skeptical praise imputed to the emperor bundles the reservations of contemporary reviewers. They capitulated to the musical overabundance of the score: Mozart took the subject too seriously, it was said at the time, his complex harmonies overwhelmed instrumentalists and listeners alike and "didn't belong in the theater."
It is the most famous ballet of all time: the sad story of Prince Siegfried, who falls in love with the swan princess Odette deep in the forest in the middle of the night, swears her eternal loyalty, but is deceived by the evil powers of the magician Rotbart and Odette's opponent Odile.

"There is no right life in the wrong one," is one of Adorno's best-known sentences. He applies precisely to Verdi's »Rigoletto«: As a follower of the frivolous Duke, the court jester Rigoletto becomes the perpetrator and at the same time tries to shield his daughter Gilda from the world around her. But in vain: The washing ends in a catastrophe, Gilda is kidnapped, seduced and finally sacrifices her life for the unstable Duke...
Alban Bergs Wozzeck tells the story of a tormented creature who, beset by visions and fears, laughed at and tormented by society, is driven out of its existence. Until the final catastrophe occurs: The desperate man murders his beloved and finds death in the water. Berg's scale-setting opera is based on a fragment of the drama by Georg Büchner (1836/7), in which the latter describes the hopelessness of people in the face of the circumstances that determine them: A simple soldier becomes the victim of the pathological malice of his fellow men, has to submit to social hardship, goes in Madness is lost and also fails because of the infidelity of the mother of his child.
