A rethinking and re-staging of the opera experience!
OPERA 4.0 – A PINNACLE OF CLASSICAL AND BAROQUE PERFORMANCE PRACTICE
Why do fewer and fewer people go to the opera? Why does opera seem boring and fuddy-duddy to many people? Because nobody understands the words or the plot unless they have read the story beforehand. Simply by emphasizing the meaning of the words, the singing once again captures the hearts of the audience. This is Opera 4.0’s mission.
Audience criticism on TwoTickets.de of "Barbiere di Siviglia" on September 8th, 2019 in the Admiralspalast Berlin
“ That was the third time that I’ve seen and heard the Barber of Seville.
I enjoyed yesterday's performance incredibly, thanks particularly to the dance projections.
It was no coincidence that the applause was overwhelming. For me Count Almaviva was the absolute star, but all the other singers were terrific too.”
“Everything was super and great. It was a lot of fun. As always the Admiralspalast is splendid. I’m eager to return. Music was amazing! Singers fantastic.
Thank you very much!”
“Superb singers, a production that concentrates on the essentials, pure musical enjoyment.”
“Great voices, great performers, very good orchestra. It’s a successful, modern production of the Barber of Seville.”
“For me it was a totally successful performance. The orchestra and singers complemented each other wonderfully and were fittingly well rewarded by the audience’s applause.”
“It was a wonderful production and a treat for the eyes and ears (with a very good orchestra).”
“For us in any case it was a great evening. Singers and orchestra were magnificent.”
“We liked the modern staging of the opera very much. Great orchestra, brilliant singers, all in all a beautiful production. The only drawback was that there was no German translation...”
“For me it was also not the first time I’d seen this opera and I was curious about the innovative aspects. The orchestra and singers were very good...”
“I knew the opera already as I had seen it in the opera house... It was excellently cast in terms of singing and acting. A great evening exceeding all my expectations...”
“... and there weren’t any surtitles either. So there was just the music and the acting talent of the singers, which was nice because you could concentrate on the music and not be distracted reading the text. And that itself was great enough.”
