Opera in Two Parts [2010]
Text by the composer, based on the drama of the same name by Franz Grillparzer

First performed with overwhelming success in 2010, Aribert Reimann’s opera is coming to Berlin for the first time – with Nicole Chevalier in the title role of the tragic outsider who becomes a merciless avenger. Based on an ancient myth and yet utterly topical, this work is produced by the Australian Benedict Andrews, who already provided audiences with powerfully disturbing images in Prokofiev’s The Fiery Angel. Contemporary musical theatre at its best!

Conductor: Steven Sloane

Director: Benedict Andrews

Wahnfried tells the story of how Wagner’s music became associated with Nazism and how Cosima Wagner, Houston Chamberlain, and other members of the Wagner circle, became a central part of nationalism in Germany. With an element of black humor coloring the narrative, Wahnfried emphasizes the grotesque nature of the pseudo-science and hatred underlying Chamberlain’s theories and the horrific consequences they had. The spirits of Wagner, Hermann Levi, and Mikhail Bakunin haunt Chamberlain through his rise and fall. Chamberlain has a final moment of hope after meeting his great admirer Adolf Hitler in 1924, but Wagner’s ghost continues to haunt him proclaiming: “Chamberlain, you didn’t understand anything: not me, not life, you’re just a marginal note, a wrong turn. Didn’t you know, that all my heroes fail?”

Children’s opera in two acts [2013]

Libretto by Richard Ayres and Lavinia Greenlaw /
Based on the story of the same name by James Matthew Barrie / German translation by Adelheid and Jürgen Dormagen

Co-production with Welsh National Opera

Flying children in Neverland! The renowned English composer Richard Ayres has taken James M. Barrie’s famous story of the boy who never wants to grow up and set it to music which is at times sensitive and emotional, at other times powerfully zippy, transforming it into a piece of furioso musical theatre for the whole family.

Conductor: Anthony Bramall

Director: Keith Warner
