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?

He plays: this very same daughter, all five of Cavallini’s lovers, and on top of that, Lucy’s gallant. In further roles – Dagmar Manzel and Max Hopp! Twenty characters, two performers. A breathless tour de force with an orchestra, conducted by Adam Benzwi, that serves up a firework display of fastpaced marches, tempestuous waltzes and incomparable chansons composed by Oscar Straus. »After just 90 minutes, one feels totally drunk on so much energy, intellect and wit.« [BERLINER MORGENPOST]

Although they couldn’t be more different, they are firmly within the grasp of acting legend Burghart Klaußner, who commands the evening as Fortunio himself.

“A musical theatre miracle!” [BERLINER MORGENPOST] One of the most successful productions of the Komische Oper Berlin returns to the repertoire for the last time after 138 performances: Prokofiev's ludicrous fairy tale about a melancholy prince who falls in love with three oranges, in a timelessly poetic production by Andreas Homoki. Thus unfolds a lusty production that cheekily rebels against logic and realism, and creates space for dreaming. “This Prokofiev passes over the stage with such infectious enthusiasm that the audience is completely out of its mind” [Opernwelt]—and has been for over 20 years now!

In Barrie Kosky's wildly acclaimed production at the 2019 Salzburg Festival, the first Offenbach operetta in the festival’s nearly 100-year-long history, grandiose Mythological Travesty joins an enthusiastic ensemble of the highest caliber. Led by the inimitable Max Hopp as John Styx, who lends his speaking voice to each figure on stage, Sydney Mancasola as Eurydice, Wolfgang Ablinger-Sperrhacke as Pluto and Peter Bording as Jupiter plunge into a gaudy, impudent, and hellish underworld.

Jupiter, the father of the gods, falls in love with Semele, the beautiful daughter of the king, just as she falls in love with him. Semele desires nothing more than to experience him in his true form: Only when he shows himself to her in all his divinity does she feel truly equal to him. Jupiter’s jealous spouse, Juno, only adds fuel to the fire of Semele’s ambition—but this leads her to ruin. The mortal Semele has nothing to protect her from Jupiter's searing presence. Semele must perish, while Jupiter goes on…

In 1983, the beat of freedom resounded from Broadway to London, Paris, Vienna and Berlin, and heralded the triumphant advance of a musical that makes everyone wishing for a life outside of petty conventions breathe a sigh of relief. A plea to trust one’s own feelings, not to pretend, and thus make the world a more colorful, beautiful and habitable place.
