Bayerische Staasoper Munich: complete schedule for 2015/2016 live stream


This week Bayerische Staatsoper/Bavarian State Opera Munich released their confirmed schedule for STAATSOPER.TV live streams this season. Six opera (five are new productions) and one ballet performances are going to be live streamed through their official website.
All six opera events are in my opinion very interesting. Jonas Kaufmann and Anja Harteros would be very delighted - they appear on two new productions (unfortunately) separately. The Munich GMD and future chief conductor of Berlin Philharmonic, Kirill Petrenko, will conduct two productions. Zubin Mehta returns to conduct Verdi's Un ballo in maschera. René Pape makes his role debut in Boito's Mefistofele and Evelyn Herlitizus too in Prokofjew's Der feurige Engel. Kristine Opolais, who since her move to Munich decided to split her time only performing in Munich and New York's Met, could be seen in two new productions. The directors are mostly young new talents or emerging names in German opera houses. As usual, expect non traditional & extreme "Regietheater/euro trash" of the house.
