Tristan und Isolde
Tristan, the adopted son of King Mark of England, is at the helm of a ship. Tristan brings Isolde, the king's daughter of the conquered Irish, to England. There he will marry her off to the widowed brand in order to strengthen the alliance of the two peoples - and his own position of power. He stays away from Isolde on board...
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.
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart's and Lorenzo Da Ponte's collaboration is one of the great fortunes in cultural history. They chose Beaumarchais ’comedy The Marriage of Figaro, the centerpiece of a trilogy of drama that had become a scandal in France, as a template for their first opera together. Therefore, although they concealed the revolutionary explosive power of the material, they dove all the more deeply into the mental life of the characters and gave the gender relations a meaning that went far beyond the original
With the four-part »Ring des Nibelungen«, Wagner created the most powerful coherent work in opera history from the spirit of early socialism in a creative process that lasted more than 25 years - a world-spanning, openly critical of capitalism parable about the irreconcilable contrast between power and love.
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.
