Be­hind the Per­for­mance

The reality behind backstage
What does an opera actually cost? Who organizes the set? How are the costumes made? And where do the ideas for a production concept come from? In cooperation with the TheaterGemeinde Berlin, artists and staff shed some light into the inner workings of the opera. On four selected dates, you will accompany a premiere production in workshop discussions with leading staff, and members of the production team. The focus next season will be Kirill Serebrennikov’s production of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s Così fan tutte, about the psychological depths of human attraction. Become a backstage insider!

How do notes become music? Who actually writes the lyrics for the singers? Who builds the stage set, and where?
Following the successful backstage visits in previous seasons, this season’s encounter is with Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s opera Così fan tutte in Kirill Serebrennikov's production.
