Live Streaming

ring für alle

The international interest in our interpretation of Richard Wagner's Ring des Nibelungen is many times greater than our small house has seats for. For this reason, we are particularly pleased to be able to offer the second Ring cycle as streaming to those at home. The performances will be broadcast live from the opera house on 18, 20, 24 and 26 May and will remain available free of charge for a month afterwards.

Trailer «Atonement»

Through a deliberate false statement, Briony Tallis, a pubescent, overzealous writer (in Marston's case: choreographer) in 1930s England, puts her older sister’s unfit lover in prison and destroys the lives and loves of two people. Her feeling of guilt accompanies her to the end of her life.

Orchestra La Scintilla

Bach

Together with the Orchestra La Scintilla, Mahan Esfahani (organ) and Riccardo Minasi (musical direction and violin) will not be presenting well-known classics, but several organ concertos by Bach that have been lost in their original versions. The concerto movements were reconstructed on the basis of cantatas in which Bach took up the musical material and reworked it.

Song recital

Piotr Beczała

Piotr Beczała is one of the most sought-after tenors of our time; he is a former long-time member of the ensemble and a favourite with Zurich audiences. Before he appears in the revival of the operetta Das Land des Lächelns at the end of June, Beczała will give a recital of Russian songs by Tchaikovsky and Rachmaninov as well as works by Karłowicz, Schumann and Grieg. Together with Helmut Deutsch, one of the most renowned song accompanists of our time, he will perform the evening.
