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.
