The premiere of »Die Jüdin von Toledo« by the German composer Detlev Glanert with a libretto by Hans-Ulrich Treichel will be a unique experience in the last season of artistic director Peter Theiler. With more than a dozen operas, Detlev Glanert has made a very important contribution to recent music theater history. The production is being designed by the internationally renowned Canadian director Robert Carsen, who is making his debut at the Semperoper.

Béla Bartók wrote his Second Violin Concerto for an unusually long time, almost two years. The reason for this lay in the commission: when Zoltán Székely requested the work in the summer of 1936, Bartók wanted to write a one-movement set of variations, while the violinist wanted a more conventional three-movement piece. The compromise between the two ideas is the basis for one of the greatest solo concertos of the 20th century: standing in the romantic tradition in its melodic richness and virtuosity, it at the same time finds new paths in its own, quite contradictory language.

 Dresdner Semperoper
Inspired by oriental fairy tales and with an admiring view of Mozart's "The Magic Flute", Richard Strauss and Hugo von Hofmannsthal created their fourth joint opera "Die Frau ohne Schatten" in 1919, a giant work that is as enigmatic as it is fascinating, rich in symbols and powerful in sound

In 1840, Saxony celebrated the 400th anniversary of the invention of the printing press at great expense. The celebrations concluded with the performance of Mendelssohn's »Lobgesang« in Leipzig's Thomaskirche. At the time of going to press, the composer dedicated the symphonic cantata to the Saxon King Friedrich August II. The plan to officially tie the famous conductor to the residency fell through, but Mendelssohn was now often to be seen in Dresden. He also conducted the Royal Musical Orchestra on Palm Sunday 1843, when his oratorio »Paulus« was on the program.
