Jaromír Weinberger 
To the Royal Throne, then to Hell and back, please!—Jaromír Weinberger's Schwanda, the Bagpiper, which premiered in Prague in 1927, was a sensational success, performed thousands of times across Europe and the USA until 1933. After the global success of the musical My Fair Lady, Andreas Homoki stages the late romantic musical theatre comedy about a bagpiper. In the cast are Baritone Daniel Schmutzhard as the Bohemian mood cannon and Kiandra Howarth as the eternally beloved Dorota. Together with General Music Director Ainārs Rubiķis, they conquer hearts, the world—and the underworld!

Jacques Offenbach
Revival
At the court of Sparta, Helena, known as the most beautiful woman in the world, is thoroughly bored at the side of her husband, King Menelaus, when suddenly a mysterious – and damnably attractive – shepherd appears and injects plenty of life back into this dull society. What other choice does Helen, a loyal servant of Venus, ultimately have than to lustfully submit to her fate?

Elena Kats-Chernin
Micheal Ende’s world-famous children’s book will be transformed for the first time into a children’s opera! While adults might remember the television recordings from the Augsburger Puppenkiste marionette theatre, younger audience members will certainly think of the very popular live film version from 2018. After Snow White and the 77 Dwarves, composer Elena Kats-Chernin and librettist Susanne Felicitas Wolf devote their creative energies to the adventures of Jim Button, Luke and – last but not least! – the locomotive Emma.

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
Director Herbert Fritsch becomes a deserter, abandoning the norm with his reading of Don Giovanni »for virtuosically arranged nonsense« that »gives the audience freedom of thought.« [FAZ] Honing in on Don Juan’s archetypal core, Fritsch brings him to life as a malicious harlequin – a shameless loser, at once side-splittingly funny and irresistible, framed by the tender, playful and dark edges of Mozart’s music. An »intelligent, fascinating presentation, miles away from all platitudes.« [klassik.com]

Claudio Monteverdi / Elena Kats-Chernin
Revival
Orpheus“A performance of such rapturous, fantastic, colourful vitality that it snatches away the fog from your ears and eyes, and you experience nothing less than the birth of theatre.” [Die Zeit] Barrie Kosky’s powerful and colourful staging of – one of our most popular productions – begins as a boisterous festival of music and love in an Arcadian paradise. It goes on to tell the story of Orpheus' journey through the underworld as a voyage into himself.

Yiddish operetta songs from Warsaw to Broadway
A virtuosic recital of yiddish songs between infectious comedy, gentle melancholy, and deeply moving despair. Following the celebrated concerts of 2015 and 2018, Farges mikh nit (Don’t forget me) returns this season to the proscenium of the Komische Oper Berlin. Ensemble member Alma Sadé, the internationally successful mezzo-soprano Helene Schneiderman, and Intendant Barrie Kosky as »a great entertainer and congenial accompanist for his two wonderful singers« [BERLINER ZEITUNG] bring a forgotten genre back to life: the Yiddish operetta.

Paul Abraham
First performed in Berlin in 1932 (with the Metropol Theatre Orchestra), this masterpiece from the pen of Jewish-Hungarian composer Paul Abraham, a dazzling revue about love, sex and the paso doble, was revived in Behrenstraße 80 years after its premiere and has been one of the house's box-office hits ever since. A rousing mixture of Berlin jazz, Hungarian Csárdás, Viennese melodiousness and Yiddish klezmer, Ball im Savoy tells a crazy story about a newly married society couple whose fidelity is put to the test. A sparkling spectacle!

Giuseppe Verdi
Premiere
Grandiose joie de vivre comes together with a quest for meaning—Giuseppe Verdi’s last masterpiece, written when he was nearly 80, not only breathed new life into the genre of Italian opera-comedy, but spontaneously revolutionised the genre and brought it into the 20th century. Exceptional baritone and »stage animal« Scott Hendricks returns to the Komische Oper Berlin in the title role, while audience favourite Günter Papendell makes his debut as the aggrieved husband, Ford.
