Johann Strauss
Revival
Seventy years after Walter Felsenstein's production of The Gypsy Baron, (the single production of this work in the history of the Komische Oper Berlin), director Tobias Kratzer, celebrated for his production of Tannhauser in Bayreuth, stages one of Strauss’s most famous operettas as a parable of the conflicts of today’s multicultural society. With Stefan Soltesz at the podium, he’ll be supported by an expert in the domain of Viennese operetta.

Giuseppe Verdi
Revival
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.

Oscar Straus
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]

Oscar Straus
Revival
Enter Dagmar Manzel and Max Hopp. She plays: Manon Cavallini, the opera diva, Raoul Severac, her suitor, as well as the father of her daughter Lucy. 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]

Tamino in the belly of the dragon, the Queen of the Night as a giant spider, dancing constellations and flying butterfly boys – the fascination The Magic Flute exerts over both young and old audience members at the Komische Oper Berlin seems endless.

Antonín Dvořák
Revival
Rusalka, the daughter of a powerful water sprite, has fallen madly in love with a human prince. Though warned against it, she prepares to leave her life behind and become human in the name of love. The mermaid is ready to make any sacrifice, but the prince, human and weak, cannot withstand this love. Ultimately, the price Rusalka has to pay for her love is high, and bitter.

Sergej S. Prokofjew

Revival
“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!

(Orphée aux enfers)
Jacques Offenbach
Revival
Shameless, funny and cheeky! 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.

Georg Friedrich Händel
Revival
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…

Georg Friedrich Handel
Revival
The magnificent magic of Baroque theatre on the stage of the Komische Oper Berlin: In the acclaimed production by Norwegian theatre magician Stefan Herheim, under the musical direction of Baroque specialist Konrad Junghänel, Handel's opera Xerxes becomes a feast for the eyes, ears and all the senses.
