The festival drama for consecrating the stage »Parsifal« is Richard Wagner’s legacy; after more than 130 years since its premiere it still retains its special character. During the 2015 FESTTAGE the Dmitri Tcherniakov’s staging for the Berliner Staatsoper im Schiller Theater premiered successfully; now Daniel Barenboim will be conducting a new series with Andreas Schager singing the title role and Anna Larsson, René Pape and Tómas Tómasson assuming others. Richard Strauss’ work »Die Frau ohne Schatten« written during World War I is among the most fascinating creations of the opera repertoire. In his opulent opus, Strauss once more unfolds the entire palette of the late Romantic orchestral style with all conceivable sounds and tones sparkling in an endless abundance of hues. Zubin Mehta, a Strauss conductor par excellence, will be unfolding the magic of this music together with the Staatskapelle and the singers. Claus Guth’s complex staging which originated at La Scala Milan and the Royal Opera House Covent Garden will be performed for the first time in Berlin as our FESTTAGE premiere.
Single ticket sales begins on 12th November 2016, 10 am.
