Puccini: Madama Butterfly

When young Japanese girl Cio-Cio San marries American lieutenant B F Pinkerton, she is convinced that it is true love. Therefore she does not worry when he leaves Japan to return to America because, naturally, he will return to her.

But to Pinkerton, his Japanese marriage was merely a way to pass the time, and he realizes too late that playing with a young, impressionable heart can have dire consequences.

Lars Kaalund's romantic, critically acclaimed interpretation of Puccini's tragic drama is a tribute to Cio-Cio San, who insists on waiting for her beloved and continues to believe in her love, even when everything looks hopeless. The set designer, Christian Friedländer, and the artist and costume designer Pernille Egeskov have created an aesthetically beautiful and simple setting, mirroring the Western world's dream of the Far East with sweeping silk kimonos inspired by Hokusai's woodcut The Great Wave off Kanagawa.

Thomas Adès: The Exterminating Angel

After a festive evening in the Opera, a group of jet setters gather for a later dinner party. But something is terribly wrong: A curse seems to have been cast on the party, making it impossible for anyone to leave the house. Soon, desperation sets in, and the dinner escalates into a nightmarish fight for survival.

The Exterminating Angel is inspired by Luis Buñuel's surrealistic cult film classic from 1962. An extra layer is added to Buñuel's universe with Thomas Adès' seductive musical universe, which abounds with sounds of musical masters of the past, from Wagner and Mussorgsky to Bartók, Nielsen, Ravel and Shostakovich and with a hint of Stravinsky's wild abandon. The piece's no fewer than twenty-two characters emphasize the immensity of its universe, set to the music of one of the most notable composers of our time.

The Exterminating Angel had its world premiere at the 2016 Salzburg Festival and is a coproduction between the Salzburg Festival, the Royal Opera House Covent Garden, the Metropolitan Opera in New York and the Royal Danish Opera.

MONTEVERDI ECHOES
Venice to Vienna

The ‘new’ Italian style of Monteverdi and his contemporaries, blossoming at the turn of the 17th century, quickly made its way across the Alps, as Italians were engaged by Austrian and German courts. In addition to Monteverdi, composers will include Biber, whose Battalia has been an audience favorite for almost 350 years, and Farina, whose Capriccio stravagante features a veritable carnival of the animals.
