Frankfurt is Opera House of the Year, Twice, Again!
according to critics from Opernwelt magazine (for the 4th time!) and Deutsch Bühne (for the 9th time!) thanks to all the people who work in the house!
Martinů's Julietta back from September 13
A beautifully mad, dreamy, romantic, unforgettable evening with a huge cast led by Juanita Lascarro back in the title role.
Season opens Aug 25 with
Tilmann Köhler's breathtaking production of Handel's Radamisto, now in the main house, with a wonderful cast including Dmitry Egorov, back in the title role, conducted by Simone Di Felice
IDOMENEO back from August 31
Mozart's favourite opera. Jan Philipp Gloger's Idomeneo (Attilio Glaser) fights his inner demons. Furious Elektra (Ambur Braid) fails to win his son Arbace (Michael Porter)'s heart.
ROSSINI'S OTELLO OPENS SEPTEMBER 8
Another wonderful Damiano Michieletto production (remember his Ferne Klang?) - Rossini's take on Shakespeare's Otello, conducted by Sesto Quatrini.
Jakub Józef Orliński Sept 3
don't miss another chance to hear this oustanding young countertenor, who thrilled audiences here as Handel's Rinaldo and as Unulfo in Rodelinda, in the first recital of the season!
