Claudio Monteverdi / Elena Kats-Chernin
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.

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.

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
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.

Jacques Offenbach
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?

Revival

Hallo, hier bin ick!! – National crisis for the Pharaoh-esse with the Berlin accent. Cleopatra’s got her hands full: drought, revolt at the palace, rebellions, and a shortage of men. When her mysterious pears come to the rescue, she’ll have the audience laughing until it hurts. »It’s pure joy to experience Manzel as the insulting female sovereign who has at least three temperaments: the power-conscious ruler, the wistful woman yearning for love, and the personality of her profusely drunken cat, Ingeborg. « [Der Tagesspiegel]

Wahrheit
Theory meets Entertainment; Art meets Scholarship. Whether in the foyer of the Komische Oper Berlin or on the web via Zoom and YouTube, these evening salon talks have become a permanent feature of our programme. Together with the Ernst Schering Foundation and supported by the Gegenbauer Group, in the 2021/22 season the Komische Oper Berlin will once again host four evening salon talks with renowned scholars on points of interest in both the academic world and the world of opera. As always, the varying dramaturgy of the discussions and thematically coordinated artistic interventions contribute to a playful, intimate atmosphere reminiscent of the salons of the 19th century.
