Next Premiere: Morning and Evening

Johannes wakes up one morning feeling light. His body seems to be devoid of all discernible traces of his long and fulfilled life as a hard-working fisherman. He makes himself a cup of coffee, rolls a cigarette, eats a slice of bread. A morning like any other, but something about the world has changed. He meets his wife Erna and later Peter, his best friend: both have been dead for some time. And when his youngest daughter Signe arrives to check on him, as she does every day, she cannot see him.

Jon Fosse’s novel “Morning and Evening” is a story of life and death, at once sad and hopeful. It tells of Johannes’ birth and of a day of leave-taking, when Peter came to go out fishing with Johannes. After all, “you’ve had to stop clinging to life, we’ve had to do something” – before they cross over to where “words and bodies, you and I, have ceased to exist” but where “everything you love lives on.”

Fosse’s novel is a laconic yet deeply poetic work, shot through with its own musicality, and thus ideally suited to provide the source material for the new opera by Georg Friedrich Haas, which is due to have its German premiere at the Deutsche Oper Berlin in the wake of its world premiere at the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden. This will be the seventh work of musical theatre by the Austrian composer, whose music combines a restrained, though no less intense form of expression with a colourful, altogether sensory tonal language. It is also Haas’ second collaboration with the Norwegian writer Jon Fosse after MELANCHOLIA, which premiered in 2008 at the Opéra National de Paris.

Change of Cast: La Traviata

We have to inform you about a change of cast: Diana Damrau is ill and has had to cancel her appearance in LA TRAVIATA. Patrizia Ciofi will be standing in for her as Violetta Valéry. Below you will find a short account of Patrizia Ciofi’s career to date.

Patrizia Ciofi was born in Casole d’Elsa, Siena. She took part in her first singing competition aged three and as a child conducted her village choir. She went on to study singing at the Istituto Superiore di Studi Musicali Pietro Mascagni in Livorno, and made her professional debut in 1989 at the Teatro del Maggio Musicale, Florence, in Gino Negri’s GIOVANNI SEBASTIANO. She has since appeared in major opera houses around the world, including La Scala, Milan, Paris Opéra, Lyric Opera of Chicago and Vienna State Opera. Her repertory includes Violetta / LA TRAVIATA, Amenaide / TANCREDI, Amina / LA SONNAMBULA, Lucia di Lammermoor, Maria Stuarda, Massenet’s Manon, Léïla / LES PÊCHEURS DE PERLES, the four heroines / LES CONTES D’HOFFMANN, Juliette / ROMÉO ET JULIETTE and Sophie / DER ROSENKAVALIER.

At the Deutsche Oper Berlin she has sung Donna Anna / DON GIOVANNI, Léïla / LES PÊCHEURS DE PERLES, Dinorah and Violetta Valéry / LA TRAVIATA.

Following our successful release of Giacomo Meyerbeer’s opera Vasco da Gama, a production awarded the Echo Prize for the Best Editorial Achievement of 2015, we are now also eager to present to you another opera by the same composer. Most opera fans know Meyerbeer’s Dinorah only from a single recording. For a long time it was the interpretation of the madness aria »Ombre legère« by Maria Callas that earned its title figure mention as the sister of other great opera heroines like Donizetti’s Lucia, Amina from Bellini’s Sonnambula, and Ophelia from the Hamlet of Ambroise Thomas: she too flees from a world that no longer understands her and seeks refuge in madness. In its complete form, however, the opéra comique Dinorah ou Le Pardon de Ploërmel continues to await discovery. Here Meyerbeer, late in his life, succeeds in producing playful, poetic, and humorously ironic evocations of the world of romantic spirits and fairies. Meyerbeer’s setting of the story focusing on the lovers Dinorah and Hoël, separated under mysterious circumstances during a pilgrimage and then happily reunited, mixes lyrical, folkloric, and comical elements lending the music a subtle color palette all of its own.
