Dear Readers : I just wanted to bring to your attention that there are still a few tickets available for the October 27 and November 3 performances of Don Giovanni at the Staatsoper im Schiller Theater.
I myself am attending tonight’s sold-out performance and will post my impressions tomorrow. My expectations, however, are running high due to a promising cast, including Christopher Maltman, Christine Schäfer, Dorothea Röschmann, Adrian Sampetran, Rolando Villazon and Anna Prohaska. Yet again, Barenboim conducts (it looks like he’s front loaded his season in Berlin with The Tsar’s Bride, Wozzeck, DG and next week’s sold-out premiere of Sacre…not to mention the glamorous new Trovatore – starring Netrebko AND Domingo (!) – at the end of the month. Did I mention that Claus Guth’s production is dynamite?
There are tickets still available in the following price categories: 90, 105 and 126 euros for the October 27 and November 3 performances. Keep in mind that the Schiller Theater is rather intimate. Don’t worry about getting a seat close to the stage and leave the binoculars at home!
