Kurt Weill's musically and dramaturgically extraordinary piece “Lady in the Dark” unites two opposing poles: the world of the greatest possible inwardness, psychoanalysis, and that of maximum superficiality, the fashion industry. Burnout shakes the life of successful businesswoman Liza Elliott, editor-in-chief of Allure magazine. Tormented by symptoms of stress, she seeks help from Doctor Brooks, a psychoanalyst. Without hesitation, this one encourages Liza to have her first therapy session, which brings to mind a song from childhood ...
Nowhere else is "Die Fledermaus" as at home as at the Vienna Volksoper. First performed in Vienna in 1874, Johann Strauss' masterpiece is regarded as the highlight of the golden operetta era.

Karl Dönch's production of Engelbert Humperdinck's fairy tale opera has lost none of its fascination over the years! The children of the poor broom-maker, Peter, break the jug while snacking on the precious cream and, out of sheer desperation, are sent by their mother into the forest, where 14 angels watch their sleep, but also the wicked crispy witch lurks.

The tear devil feeds on the voices of kidnapped children. Antonia bravely resists and finds her allies in the silent servant Jonathan and the two bats Toby and Roby. Together they discover mysterious processes in the castle and the omniscient primal stocking. But how do you get him to talk? Will they manage to free the other children?

This ballet is not an ascension, but shows in a powerful language of movement anchored on the floor, how much a person standing in the middle of life is always turned towards the shadow of dying. But this dance piece also knows moments of indescribable lightness: in the joyful leaps, the subtle exploration of balances or the filigree discovery of the divine in the human being.
