Tristan returns in triumph to the Teatro Regio
tage director Claus Guth focused on the passionate love story between the two, and highlighted its intimate facet by setting the action in a 19th century high-middle class apartment. Isolde wakes up in the morning in her bedroom to the nicely sung outside melody, and asks to see Tristan. The sets, designed by Christian Schmidt (who also took care of the costumes), featured a revolvin...

Bérénice
Jarrell, who created his own libretto, gave much thought to the setting of the French language and Racine’s alexandrines; he created a text that was free of the strict classical form of the language while retaining the sense of the original. The libretto for the ninety-minute work, presented in four sequences, was generally clear and apt, combining natural speech rhythms with more el...

The sacrifice of Bérénice: a long break-up at the Opéra Garnier in Paris
In the title role, the splendid Barbara Hannigan embodies the voice of passion and gives free rein to her emotions with agile and voluble phrasing. The final scene enlightens her personality in a new way, her singing seeming constrained as soon as she submits to the demands of duty. Conversely, Bo Skovhus's majestic Titus expresses himself in long and monotone phrases, his resignatio...

Violetter Schnee
Die ästhetische Geschlossenheit dieser Opernnovität ist faszinierend. Fluchtwege bleiben hier nur ins Assoziative. So wie für das halbe Dutzend Protagonisten auf der Bühne der frisch renovierten Lindenoper. Die hat jetzt mit Beat Furrers Violetter Schnee eine in jeder Hinsicht exquisite Uraufführung zu verbuchen. Der österreichische Dramatiker Händl Klaus, der mit Furrer schon bei de...

Claus Guth presents The Makropulos Case as tragicomedy in Berlin
Marlis Petersen is a versatile and engaging performer with a clean and excellent top and a secure middle voice. She was in her element as the self-centred, cold, calculating yet vulnerable diva manipulating – and being manipulated by – the men around her. It is not easy to sympathise with her character, and Petersen’s interpretation did little to give Emilia any warmth or love for ot...
