Information

Love as a cliché, love as a figment of fantasy, love on the off-chance: this evening of experimental theatre revolves around the greatest opera theme of them all, and the entire Tischlerei is given over to the production. The work springs from an eclectic body of literary and musical studies in love that include Oscar Wilde's artistic fairy tale »The Rose and the Nightingale« and Jean Genet's novel »Querelle«. The entire musical genre is on a quest here for the lost land of love or aleatory chance encounters.

The work develops ideas ranging from intimate monologues to multimedia installations featuring simultaneous scenes on two screens. LOVE AFFAIRS is the result of a collaboration between twelve young drama professionals, all grant recipients of the "Musical Theatre Academy, today" the Deutsche Bank Foundation – composers, directors, dramatic advisors, conductors, set designers and culture facilitators.

A cooperation of Deutsche Oper Berlin with Deutsche Bank Stiftung
