This rarely performed opera features a comeback after 15 years! The grand seigneur of realistic musical theatre is back – and he is fulfilling a long-held dream: Harry Kupfer, who made theatre history here in the Behrenstrasse, presents a fundamental conflict of European modernity with Georg Friedrich Handel’s masterful Baroque opera Poro.
Eric sings the role of Alexander the Great.
