Operetta by Ralph Benatzky

There is high season in the "White Horse Inn" ("Im Weissen Rössl"): The vacationers and fortune hunters are mostly summer guests from northern Germany. Their contact with the Upper Austrian staff - up front Lady Innkeeper Josepha Voglhuber and her head waiter Leopold - repeatedly results in loving culture shock. Yet never mind the stiff northern characters. It's "Easy to be happy in Salzkammergut!" With Ralph Benatzky's operetta The White Horse Inn, you can expect a satirical, humorous "Ode to Summer Vacation". More

Musical by Terrence McNally and David Yazbek

After the steel plant is closed down, depression spreads throughout the city. Jerry Lukowski is particularly hard hit. He is behind with alimony payments for his son; his ex-wife threatens him with loss of custody. His brilliant idea: Jerry and his buddies from the steel plant will strip – real men, the full programme! Jerry gathers a sympathetic group of losers and rehearses elegant disrobing and erotic dance movements with them.  More

Dance theatre by Mei Hong Lin, Music by Alexander Zemlinsky

The King of the Sea’s daughter falls in love with an earthly prince and enters the human world to look for him, although she is in great pain with every step she takes. In 1902 himself in the throes of unrequited unconditional love, Austrian composer Alexander von Zemlinsky found encouragement and inspiration in Hans Christian Andersen’s The little Mermaid for his symphonic poem. He cleverly employed heartrending music to express the psychological process of losing a beloved person, rejection and suffering. More

OR HOW MANY OPERAS FIT INTO ONE MUSICAL

In a wager with fellow members at the London Reform Club, Phileas Fogg claims that he can circumnavigate the world in 80 days! He embarks on the journey with his servant Passepartout, closely followed by detective Fionula Fix, who was hired by Stuart. Fogg’s agenda is in danger: In Paris, he happens upon a festival of the Merry Widow Hanna Glawari, in Rome, Tosca falls into his arms, in Beijing, Turandot wants to have him beheaded! The fact that Fogg is triumphant in the end, is as miraculous as any opera libretto could create … More

COMIC OPERA IN THREE ACTS BY GIUSEPPE VERDI

Falstaff, a knight and libertine par excellence, just as hard drinking as he is chronically bankrupt, has the ingeniously impertinent idea to write identical love letters to two wives of wealthy citizens. Too bad that the two women are well acquainted with each other and conspire to take revenge. In the course of this wonderfully entertaining opera evening, things become more and more complicated until finally no one knows exactly who the joker is and who is the butt of the joke. More

CHAMBER OPERA BY MICHAEL OBST

Stanisław Lem’s, Solaris is widely regarded as one of the most enthralling and iconic novels of the science fiction genre. The story about a research facility on the planet Solaris, where scientists working there meet revenants from their own past, has inspired numerous filmmakers and playwrights to produce creative interpretations. The composer Michael Obst, a student of Karlheinz Stockhausen, was the first to bring this subject to the operatic stage. In 1996, the work premiered at Munich’s Biennale for New Musical Theatre, in a co-production with the innovative IRCAM in Paris (Institut de Recherche et Coordination Acoustique/Musique). More
