Der Zauberer von Oz
Opera from Gioacchino Rossini

Duration: 3 hours , Intermissions: 1

Rossini's comic opera, which had its world premiere in 1816, was a work for which he ought to have won several prizes. A prize for speed: "... I wrote the first act in eight days, and the second in another twelve"...
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
Even the ancient Greeks told the legend of the sculptor Pygmalion, who created a statue of women of such overwhelming beauty that he fell in love with her. Aphrodite proved to be merciful, brought the statue to life and gave her to Pygmalion. George Bernard Shaw transformed the antique fabric into the enchanting comedy Pygmalion, which was used by Alan Jay Lerner and Frederick Loewe in 1956 as a model for their successful musical My Fair Lady.
Who doesn’t know the tale of the wooden puppet who is brought to life and whose nose grows when he lies? Before the runaway Pinocchio can find his way back to his father Geppetto and become a boy of flesh and blood, he must survive numerous perils: he gets thrown into prison, almost freezes to death, frees himsel from the clutches of a cruel circus director and withstands a shark attack....
The ugly duckling of Andrey Kaydanovskiy
One Thousand and One Nights of Vesna Orlic

Robert Meyer, proven interpreter of Valentine's quirky philosophical texts, creates a delicious blend of monologues and couplets between slapstick, situational comedy and profound wit. Also present: the folk music band "Kantinenbrass".
Operetta by Johann Strauß
in German language with English surtitles

This quintessential Viennese operetta deserves to be enjoyed throughout the year, and not just on New Year's Eve. Eisenstein evades a summons to serve a brief prison sentence by accepting Falke's invitation to Prince Orlowsky's party...
Musical by Frederick Loewe
In German language
Ever since its first performance, Coppélia has retained its status as one of the most masterful works of the ballet genre, owing to the compelling quality of both Arthur Saint-Léon’s original choreography and Léo Delibes’ music. Pierre Lacotte, choreographer and “dance archaeologist”, restored the work in 1973, including parts that had been deleted in 1872. His picturesque version won lasting success in Paris and is now part of the Wiener Staatsballett’s repertoire.
