Braunfels: Ulenspiegel

Stage and costume design: Susanne Thomasberger

Lighting: Roman Hauser, Jan Derschmidt

Charles de Coster's novel Thyl Ulenspiegel provided the source for Braunfels’ opera of the same name. It narrates one of the darkest chapters in human history – the Spanish Inquisition in 16th-century Flanders – through the improbable voice of a world-famous buffoon. He depicts an apocalyptic panorama, in which the Seven Deadly Sins of the Bible, like the Riders of the Apocalypse, come to haunt the last remnants of mankind. Amid this doom and gloom, the composer Walter Braunfels sets his focus on the origins and general development of resistance. Ulenspiegel becomes an incisive case study of an apolitical daredevil who undergoes a radical personal transformation as a consequence of the terror which befalls his family. Promoted to become the political leader of the resistance, his mind knows only one thing: all-encompassing revenge.

1789: Theatre Du Soleil

1789: Theatre Du Soleil


Theatre Du Soleil

Following the Champ de Mars massacre on July 17th 1791, some comedians decide to reenact the main events of the previous years : from the summoning of the Estates-General to the proclamation of the martial law, through the Storming of the Bastille, the Great Fear, and the abolition of feudalism. With intense zest and enthusiasm, they try to show the dashing of hopes, the bursting of joy quickly followed by the collapse of the dreams of equality. To this end, the comedians use all the theatrical forms they have at hand, pantomime, tragedy, puppetry, opera buffa, and they incarnate the people, the richer and the poorer, who made 1789 such a decisive year, all the while illustrating what Saint-Just once said : « The Revolution stops when perfect happiness is reached »

Exclusive bonus : « 1789 – 40 years later » by Stefano Missio (48 min.)

Schubert: Winterreise D911

Schubert: Winterreise D911

Festival d’Aix-en-Provence, France, July 2015


Matthias Goerne (baritone) & Markus Hinterhäuser (piano)

Franz Schubert´s Winterreise engages with its audience in a new and unexpected form. Matthias Goerne, 'the voice of perfection' (Le Figaro), pianist Markus Hinterhäuser and South African director, set designer and theatrical artist William Kentridge joined forces on stage and traced newly imagined, deeply moving images. In short animated films, Kentridge visualises Goerne’s and Hinterhäuser’s sonic contribution. A memorable meeting 'of melancholy and magic' (La Marseillaise). 'Mr. Kentridge’s 24 stop-action films - made up of animated ink drawings and collages - offer a visually mesmerising and thought-provoking commentary on Schubert’s song cycle' (New York Times). 'There is an unusual robustness to his (Matthias Goerne´s) wanderer, infused by the virile beauty of his powerful baritone' (New York Times).

Prokofiev: Romeo and Juliet, Op. 64

May 7, 2015, War Memorial Opera House, San Francisco


Maria Kochetkova & Davit Karapetyan

San Francisco Ballet Orchestra & San Francisco Ballet, Martin West

Choreography by Helgi Tomasson

With passionate choreography, spine-tingling swordsmanship, and a celebrated score by Sergei Prokofiev, San Francisco Ballet’s passionate retelling of the Bard’s greatest tragedy has packed houses around the world. Romeo & Juliet is one of the company’s most popular and widely toured ballets and has been seen by more than 200,000 people since it premiered in 1994. Choreographed by Helgi Tomasson, with sets and costumes by Jens-Jacob Worsaae, this visually stunning production and the brilliant dancers of SF Ballet bring this powerful and touching tragedy – and Renaissance-era Verona – vividly to life. ‘Tomasson lifts Shakespeare’s complex and familiar language off the gilded pages and translates it into lucid classical choreography that is visceral, fresh, and ultimately sublime’ (Huffington Post).

Verdi: Un ballo in maschera

Verdi: Un ballo in maschera


Piotr Beczala (Riccardo), George Petean (Renato), Anja Harteros (Amelia), Okka von der Damerau, Sofia Fomina (Oscar)

Bayerisches Staatsorchester, Zubin Mehta

Staged by Johannes Erath

Munich’s new Ballo in maschera has received much critical acclaim: ‘This production shows what a utopia opera can be’ (Abendzeitung). Ten years after stepping down as music director of the Bavarian State Opera, Zubin Mehta returned to Munich in March 2016 to celebrate his 80th birthday conducting Verdi’s masterpiece for the first time in a staged production. His cast features some of today’s finest Verdi singers: soprano Anja Harteros, singing Amelia for the first time and ‘filling every note with Verdian intensity’, tenor Piotr Beczala as a ‘visually and vocally dashing Riccardo’ and George Petean as an ‘exemplary’ Renato (Neue Musikzeitung). In director Johannes Erath’s super-sensitive new production, this historically-based tale of illicit love, conspiracy and betrayal unfolds in a surrealistic, shadowy setting transformed by lighting and projections. Special praise was showered by the enthusiastic critics on Maestro Mehta, whom ‘creates concentrated musical connections, miraculously guiding his orchestra and unsurpassable voices the way a thermal lifts a paraglider... Musically the performance was a dream‘ (Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung).

Mercadante: Francesca da Rimini

Mercadante: Francesca da Rimini

42° Festival della Valle d’Itria, Martina Franca, Italy


Leonor Bonilla (Francesca), Aya Wakizono (Paolo), Merto Süngü (Lanciotto), Antonio Di Matteo (Guido), Larisa Martinez (Isaura) & Ivan Ayon Rivas (Guelfo)

Orchestra Internazionale d’Italia, Chorus of the Transylvania State & Philharmonic Orchestra of Cluj-Napoca, Fabio Luisi

First recording and world première performance.

Director, Sets and Costume Designer Pier Luigi Pizzi

Choreographer Gheorghe Iancu

Written almost two centuries ago by Saverio Mercadante, coveted by many theatres of the day, Francesca da Rimini was, in fact, never staged. Every time it was scheduled for performance, something happened and it got canceled. A long series of incidents prevented it from reaching the stage for as many as 185 years. Its forgotten manuscript, which was only known for its ill-starred fate, suddenly re-emerged five years ago in Madrid, teh city where it was to have been premiered in 1831. The soprano Leonor Bonilla is quite impressive in the part of the protagonist: she portrays the character's psychological frailty as well as her determination wtih a steely vocal technique, spinning out incredible modulations, displaying strong and dazzling vocalizations, easily soaring into the high register and flaunting such an attractive, casual and poignant stage presence that she even dares moving some dance steps with the corps de ballet. Aya Wakizono is an admirable Paolo: endowed with a superb mezzo voice, she seeks and achieves consistency throughout the range, is virtuosic in the coloratura, and fluent. No less demanding is the part of the tenor Lanciotto, with its fearful leaps and ornamentation worth of the Neapolitan Rossini: Mert Sungu might in time get rid of a touch of harshness here and there, but already now he can tackle all the difficulties of the part with a timbric quality and an expressively worth of note…

Philharmonisches Staatsorchester Hamburg, Vokalsolisten Hamburg, Kent Nagano (conductor) & Oriza Hirata (director)

First Hamburgische Staatsoper production with Musical Director Kent Nagano to be released on DVD.

One of Germany’s most acclaimed theatrical events of recent years: Stilles Meer (Silent Sea), by Japan’s most important living composer, dedicated to the victims of the earthquake and tsunami that took place on March 11, 2011.

Toshio Hosokawa‘s opera draws on the Noh play Sumidagawa (Sumida River) about a mother’s overwhelming grief on the death of her son, and Mori Ōgai’s book Maihime (The Dancing Girl), about an ill-fated German-Japanese love affair. The production is staged by the celebrated Japanese director-playwright Oriza Hirata.

A fantastic cast, led by stars such as Danish soprano Susanne Elmark and counter tenor Bejun Mehta.

Anna Spina (viola)

Benoît Piccand (sound director)

World Premiere Recordings with a bonus interview between Marcus Weiss and Giorgio Netti.

One could designate this cycle as a small odyssey of breathing, becoming acoustically transformed from the body / space into the body / material and body / instrument of tradition. It narrates a journey and return; the piece carries on the tradition of the νόστοι (the poems of the Iliad, describing the return of the Greeks to their homeland after the conquest of Troy), whereby the viola assumes the role of the narrator, simultaneously serving as a narrating voice and the location of the journey: of the expanded acoustical space as a slow return to the instrument, as separation and rebirth.
