The season, day by day

back to calendar

Maria Bengtsson (soprano)
& Sarah Tysman (piano)

Now that things are starting to relax a bit after the corona crisis peak has hopefully passed, the powers that be in Hessen are allowing theatres to open again to a limited number of members of the public (new regulations for audience members can be found here) to ensure that they are able to keep their distance from each other and people working in the building.

The theatre re-opens with the Swedish soprano Maria Bengtsson (here's the programme!),  whose recital in Frankfurt in January was an outstanding success with the audience and press. She is one of the most sought-after interpreters of Strauss in the world (who was to have sung the Marschallin in Der Rosenkavalier  right now in Frankfurt). Singing music by Strauss she will be joined by the mezzo-soprano Cecelia Hall (a member of the Ensemble who was to have sung Octavian), the pianist Sarah Tysman and members of the Frankfurter Opern- und Museumsorchester.

Hygiene and keeping our distance from each other regulations mean that we are allowed to sell „only“ 100 tickets. Ticket holders must keep their masks on until they are sitting in their seats. Tickets, which can only be purchased from Oper Frankfurt's Webshop, go on sale at 10am on May 25  - link on this page will not work before then: €50 (stalls), €30 (dress circle).
