It's time to book your tickets for the Zurich Opernhaus opera and ballet performances !

 

The Zurich Opera House is not only a charming, human-sized theater, but it has the perfect acoustics to accommodate all opera repertoires. For a long time, the hall has been among the best in the world thanks to audacious and successful productions, always served by exceptional distributions.

 

Is it worth remembering that Cecilia Bartoli has made her home here and that she offers each season an apparition of which she holds the secret? This season 2018-2019, we must book his opera tickets as soon as possible because the reprise of Haendel´s Semele is quite an event. The brilliant production of Robert Carsen with Frédéric Antoun as Jupiter is led by one of the greatest figures of the Baroque, William Christie.

 

The great Cecilia Bartoli is also on display for opera arias by Handel, Mozart and Rossini. The stars of the operatic singing follow each other on the stage of the Zurich Opera. Bryn Terfel has also become a regular on the scene and is present this season 2018-2019 in a new production of the musical Sweeney Todd of Sondheim, role in which he excels. The director of the hall Andreas Homoki himself is responsible for the staging.

 

Among the new shows on display, Fabio Luisi, the Musical Director of the Zurich Opera, has chosen to direct Hänsel und Gretel by Humperdinck staged by Robert Carsen, Verdi's Nabucco where he has a perfect cast ( Michael Volle, Catherine Naglestad, Veronica Simeoni, Benjamin Bernheim) in a production of Andreas Homoki and finally Le Grand Macabre. Ligeti's apocalyptic opera is directed by Tatjana Gürbaca, who was responsible for Werther, where Juan Diego Flórez was a great success. Another masterpiece of Massenet is on display, Manon again enjoying an exceptional poster. The young and very talented Elsa Dreisig plays the role of the courtesan facing Piotr Beczala who affirms himself more and more in the French repertoire.

 

Another masterpiece, Baroque this one, Hippolyte and Aricie de Rameau profits from a dreamcast. Cyrille Dubois, Mélissa Petit, Stéphanie d'Oustrac and Jean-François Lapointe are an ideal combination and this new production will undoubtedly provide one of the highlights of the baroque season 2018-2019. Another Baroque production, La Verità in Cemento by Vivaldi, allows Ottavio Dantone to bring together a five-star cast with Richard Croft, Christophe Dumaux, Delphine Galou and the formidable Julie Fuchs. The soprano who has just accomplished a triumph in Count Ory again sings Rossini with Il turco in Italia where she has as partners, Nahuel Di Pierro, Edgardo Rocha or Pietro Spagnoli.

 

The same requirement is made on the reprises. For example, Strauss' masterpiece Der Rosenkavalier includes Krassimira Stoyanova and Sabine Devieilhe for her very first Sophie on stage. Precious tenor Michael Spyres takes on an important role with Pollione in Bellini's Norma directed by Fabio Luisi in Robert Wilson's staging with Maria Agresta. Finally three of the world's greatest sopranos at the Zurich Opera this season 2018-2019 to embody a great role. Diana Damrau is Lucia di Lammermoor, Evelyn Herlitzius the Elektra of Strauss R. and Anja Harteros, the Leonora of The Forza del Destino of Verdi.

 

In addition to concerts and dance (with Christian Spuck, Jirí Kylián, León & Lightfoot, Patrice Bart, etc.) who hold a grand and noble place in the program of the Zurich Opera, a concert version is particularly noteworthy. Pretty Yende and Lawrence Brownlee are starring in Bellini's La Sonnambula. A great luxury, only at Opernhaus Zürich where you have to book your opera tickets quickly.

Informations sur Opernhaus

The Zurich Opera House is famous the world over for both opera and dance. It is among the most important European theatres and plays host to leading conductors. The original theatre built in 1833 was replaced by the present building which was opened in 1891. It was the venue for the first performance of Parsifal outside Germany.

 

The history of the Opernhaus has indeed been punctuated by numerous premieres: Turandot by Busoni in 1917, Lulu in 1937, Mathis der Mahler and Cardillac by Hindemith (1938 and 1952) and Moses und Aron by Schönberg in 1957. Several major conductors such as Otto Ackerman, Hans Knappertsbuch, and Wilhelm Furtwängler conducted a varied repertoire always with the greatest singers (Lisa della Casa was for instance a member of the Opernhaus company).

 

It was at the Studiobühne too that the young singers Gwyneth Jones and Edith Mathis perfected their craft. One of the most outstanding events of its history was the “re-staging” for the first time of the operas of Monteverdi and Mozart performed on period instruments at the instigation of the pioneer Nikolaus Harnoncourt supported by the legendary stage settings of Jean-Pierre Ponnelle. These productions contributed to the renaissance of Baroque opera and the rediscovery of a vast repertoire.

 

Today the Opernhaus is one of the few theatres that can pride itself on presenting the greatest stars of the opera world in one and the same season. With its well-thought out and varied programming, the audience has every reason to be satisfied.
