Berlin calls

Two upcoming visits: the first devoted to the Staatsoper's Festtage, the second to the Deutsche Oper. No insult intended to the Komische Oper and other organisations: I hope it will not be too long before I darken your doors again too. Herewith my plans:

24 March: Yo-Yo Ma/Staatskapelle Berlin/Daniel Barenboim: Dvořák Cello Concerto; Elgar Second Symphony
25 March: Parsifal; dir. Tcherniakov; Schager, Meier, Pape, Koch, et al./Staatskapelle Berlin/Barenboim

26 March: Argerich/Barenboim, et al.: works by Schumann, Debussy, and Bartók

27 March Orfeo ed Euridice; dir. Flimm (designs by Frank Gehry); Mehta, Prohaska, et al./Staatskapelle Berlin/Barenboim

6 April Salome; dir. Guth; Naglestad, Volle, et al.; cond. Altinoglu

7 April Elektra; dir. Kirsten Harms; Herlitzius, Soffel, Uhl, et al.; cond. Runnicles

8 April Die ägyptische Helena; dir. Marto Arturo Marelli; Merbeth, Aikin, Vinke, et al.; cond. Litton

9 April Die Liebe der Danae; Delavan, Uhl, et al.; dir. Harms; cond. Weigle

10 April Der Rosenkavalier; dir. Friedrich; Harteros, Sindram, et al.; cond. Schirmer

The eagle eyed amongst you might notice a certain theme to the works being performed at the Deutsche Oper.

AHH Waltraud Meier's final Kundry's. Couldn't be more jealous.

Decided to visit Berlin and Staatsoper after your glowing review last year. So looking forward to hearing Barenboim conduct Wagner

I suspect you will get the better Parsifal of the two of us, and you are attending on the appropriate date, but I'm looking forward to seeing it with friends with Stockholm on Easter Monday, the identity of its director notwithstanding. I envy you the week of Strauss; I am settling for a Swedish production of the Strauss-influenced Tote Stadt. Are you planning to catch the Leipzig Ring cycle later in the year?
