Cayetano Soto: Peter I. Tschaikowski

new production

A dance story about Tchaikovsky, illuminating the long-hidden moments of his life. Through his compositions, Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky influenced and shaped classical ballet like few other composers. The myth of his music remains unbroken to this day. Cayetano Soto draws an engaging portrait of a man who could not live his life the way he wanted to. In "Tchaikovsky", the view behind the glorious moments of a biography is revealed - in brokenness, courage and genius.

Festspielhaus Baden-Baden: Strauss: Elektra

upcoming production 

Richard Strauss' Elektra in a new production by director Philipp Stölzl with Kirill Petrenko and the Berliner Philharmoniker at the Easter Festival in Baden-Baden.

 

Richard Strauss’s Elektra was the sensation that ushered in modernity by at the same time popularizing it.  Heroes on the verge of madness, just what the audience loves! The world comes tumbling down upon us,  specifically here: the Straussian orchestra. No fewer than 111 musicians conjure up magic that carries the  singers and propels them forward: our opera performance, legendary Wagner voices Nina Stemme in the title role and Michaela Schuster as Clytemnestra, who offer up plenty of mother-daughter psychodrama. The  tempestuous duo is joined and brought down to earth by Elza van den Heever as Elektra's sister who  yearns for love.
