Though unimpressed with its Regietheater component, our classical music reviewer was largely impressed with the singing and recommends the opera as a good, accessible introduction to Wagner. Last performance of the season: 27 May at Oper Leipzig.
The beauty of the project is that it can be actively enjoyed, with not only the sight and intellectual senses being awakened, but with the possibility of hearing music samples at each location, or imagining the songbird in a Leipzig park which inspired one of Mahler’s melodies.
Malandain’s choreography is grounded in elegant tradition while completely in touch with today. See it 12 May.
A personal memoir with all the elements I like; family, travelogue and art manual.
Perfect day after Boxing Day activity!
Welcome to the holy grail of festival tickets in Germany.
