It is a story full of misunderstandings: love is confused with desire, an affair with an exclusive relationship, affection with possession, and violence with passion...
A woman alone on the big stage with her back turned to us. She wears a bright red dress and pointe shoes. A camera lying on the floor is aimed at her feet. A man joins it. He picks up the camera and lets it sweep over us - the audience. Thrown huge on a canvas, it is we who unexpectedly find ourselves as protagonists in the puzzle that Hans van Manen designed in the first video ballet in dance history: a sophisticated exploration of perspectives, distance and closeness...
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.

Everything ends what arises

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.

A walk through the year as a metaphor for life! With »Die Jahreszeiten« the very old Joseph Haydn composed a great secular oratorio about the integration of humans in the cycle of nature - music full of colors, full of glamor and great rhetorical force, like a reviewer on May 2, 1801 after the Vienna premiere in the Leipziger Allgemeine musischen Zeitung remarked: “Sometimes the melody of the song is delighted, sometimes the tremendous intervention of all instruments is shaken like a forest river that breaks through all dams; Now the simple, artless expression delights, now one admires the lavish exuberance in quick and bright chords. From the beginning to the end, the mind is involuntarily torn from the most touching to the most terrible, from the most naive to the most artificial, from the most beautiful to the most sublime.
