Die Zauberflöte
Mozart's penultimate opera, and a fairy-tale work that remains popular with young and old alike. The prince Tamino, with the aid of a magic flute and the bird catcher Papageno as his guide, finds the Temple of Isis where Pamina, the woman he loves but has never met, resides. Pamina, daughter of the Queen of the Night, together with Tamino, undergo tests to prove their virtue and constancy and good triumphs over evil through the power of love.
In order to go about his smuggling activities undisturbed, innkeeper Benozzo has invented the bandit Gasparone. The residents of Trapani have avoided the surrounding forests ever since. One day, however, a stranger turns up singing “I only want gold and precious gems” and courts the widowed Countess Carlotta. Have Trapani’s residents feared Gasparone for so long that he has become reality?
Tsar Peter the Great is residing anonymously in Holland in order to acquire shipbuilding skills, where he meets fellow Russian Peter Iwanow, a young deserter. The latter is in love with Marie, the niece of simpleminded mayor van Bett, and is mad with jealousy. Various envoys try to track down the monarch, but having more than one Peter around results in numerous instances of mistaken identity …
In their new BaRock opera, the composer Christian Kolonovits and his librettist Angelika Messner tell the life story of Antonio Vivaldi, the superstar of the Baroque era. An all-girl rock band finds their idol’s diary through which Vivaldi’s life unfolds like a colourful tapestry of truth, imagination and invention. The new opera musically combines Baroque elements with the distinct power of rock music.

The Italian grand master Giacomo Puccini proved with his opera triptych in the year 1918 that he was also accomplished at writing smaller-scale works. This production presents the first and third parts of the triptych. „Il tabarro“ („The Cloak“) is a dark story about a love triangle unfolding at a Parisian dock, culminating in a thrilleresque and almost cinematic showdown
Book author Laurents, lyricist Sondheim and composer Jule Styne combined their talents in 1959 for one of the greatest Broadway shows of all time. Gypsy is based on real people and has even been labelled the “mother of all musicals.” In any case, the plot centres on a strong “stage mother.” Mama Rose wants to see her daughter in the spotlight, though ultimately she stands in it alone.
