Three operas with great superstars: D. Damrau, A. Netrebko, P. Domingo, B. Mehta,...
This trip is tailor-made for a perfect discovery of the two great opera houses of the city. The Deutsche Oper is the West Berlin Opera with the symbolic architecture of the reconstruction years. Gounod’s Faust enjoys an almost ideal cast with Diana Damrau's Marguerite and Bryan Hymel's Faust. Daniel Barenboim conducts Verdi's Macbeth with a dream cast. The couple is Anna Netrebko and Plácido Domingo. Superstars for the biggest highlights of the season. Your stay is perfectly complemented by Orfeo ed Euridice, Gluck's masterpiece performed by the refined voices of Bejun Mehta and Elsa Dreisig. The direction of Domingo Hindoyan is a real plus for these five-star operas.
Two operas at the Festival dell'Arena di Verona
It is useless to present the Verona Opera Festival. For all opera lovers around the world, it is an exceptional stage. Every year, the spectators crowd on the stands of the old Arena to attend spectacular operas. During this stay, two great opera masterpieces are directed by the great director Franco Zeffirelli. Puccini’s Turandot and Verdi’s Aida find the splendor of the sumptuous sets and a staging in the great tradition of the Arena. Two exceptional events not to be missed.
SUMMER SALZBURGER FESTSPIELE
At the Grosses Festspielhaus with J. Kaufmann, M. Goerne, E.-P. Salonen,...
The Salzburger Festspiele is the most prestigious festival of the world. As proof, this exceptional stay opens with Jonas Kaufmann recital, today’s greatest tenor. The first opera is the inescapable and wonderful Die Zauberflöte. Mozart’s Magic Flute brings together an exceptional cast including Matthias Goerne as Sarastro. The famous Wiener Philharmoniker is again the guest orchestra for a concert led by Esa-Pekka Salonen who directs “Also sprach Zarathustra” by Richard Strauss, among others. The second opera of the stay also features a renowned conductor, Mariss Jansons conducts Tchai-kovsky's “The Queen of Spades” directed by Hans Neuenfels.
AUGUST 11th WEEKEND
Two operas at the Bayreuther Festspiele: R. Alagna, A. Harteros,...
This unique stay allows you to enjoy the unique and exceptional acoustics of the Festspielhaus with two highly anticipated productions. Lohengrin conducted by the perfect Christian Thielemann gives Roberto Alagna the opportunity to make his debut at the legendary Bayreuth Festival. He has at his side the most brilliant of the Elsa in the person of the divine Anja Harteros. Waltraud Meier and Tomasz Konieczny complete this luxurious cast. Der fliegende Holländer is obviously a Bayreuth staple, especially in the staging already received with very good reviews.
AUGUST 18th WEEKEND
Three operas at the Bayreuther Festspiele: C. Thielemann, P. Domingo,...
Tristan und Isolde and Parsifal are undoubtedly the two greatest masterpieces of master Richard Wagner. The first revolutionized the world of opera and the second is the testamentary work. The Bayreuth 2018 programme is exciting because it allows two great conductors to offer their vision of masterpieces. Christian Thielemann is attached to the great German tradition while Semyon Bychkov is often shining with his total commitment. The third performance proposed during this exceptional stay in more than one way is simply Die Walküre directed by Plácido Domingo, a woof and an artist that one no longer presents.
Three evenings at the Wexford Opera Festival
This trip offers four works : The comedy “Dinner at Eight” by William Bolcom, who is celebrating its 80th birthday. Of Umberto Giordano, we know especially the famous Andrea Chénier. Despite its popular success, the opera “Mala vita” was scandalous because of its subject (a woman falling into prostitution). At Covent Garden ten years later, Franco Leoni created “L'oracolo” his most famous opera. The two verismo works are complete rediscoveries. Saverio Mercadante suffers from the compari-son with Verdi who took all the light. It is time present these operas as in Wexford with “Il bravo”, a story of a murder! Knowing the excellence of the season, there is no doubt that these operas will surprise! The lucky festival-goers will have a unique chance to taste the pleasure of being precursors !
Attend to Bizet's Carmen in Odeon of Herodes Atticus Theater.
Discover Athens' new Opera House, Stavros Niarchos Concert Hall, by attending to an unique performance. You will also attend to a concert or an opera performance at the Megaron Concert Hall or at the antique Odeon Herod Atticus. Also have a guided tour to the Acropolis and the Acropolis Museum!
Three evenings at the Verdi Opera Festival
This 100% Verdi stay offers the opportunity to attend to three new productions. We no longer pre-sent these masterpieces. Macbeth directed by Daniele Abbado offers two golden roles for Anna Pirozzi and Luca Salsi, great Verdian voices. The staging of “Le Trouvère” is given to Robert Wilson, the famous magician of lights. Another par-ticularity, it is the French version which is proposed in Parma. Finally, we are constantly rediscovering “Attila”, which include great moments of music. Verdi's Lovers will be thrilled!
