Nina Stemme in „Tosca“
In the title role of Puccini’s TOSCA Nina Stemme puts her faith in a despot – and comes to grief as a result. The Swedish soprano describes here how she addresses the horrors that Tosca faces – torture, fear, yearning, death – in order to sing of them ... At her side are Fabio Sartori and Ambrogio Maestri under the baton of Donald Runnicles.

About the performance

Detlev Glanert: Oceane
Best Premiere
"With his opera Oceane, Detlev Glanert has begun a coup. At its core is a mysterious woman who transfixes a conservative male society, and ultimately falls. Detlev Glanert not only masters all the finesse of the opera orchestra, but also lets the music and characters retain their mystery and secrecy. It is a fascinating work recommended for all directors to reenact." (according the the jury)

Samuel Penderbayne: The Snow Queen
With humour and awe Brigitte Dethier and Samuel Penderbayne will tell a road-trip movie together: musical flowers, a croaking clarinet, a tuba reindeer and the eerily beautiful synthesiser world of the Snow Queen are just a few ingredients in this musical theatre in which the children experience the story up close.
