Oopperan kummitus
Carolyn Carlson - Serge Lifar

A French soiree

28.9.2018 – 20.10.2018

Très chic!

A French soiree presents two totally different dance works – naturally with a good dose of French elegance. Carolyn Carlson’s Pneuma is sophisticated and philosophical, an ode to humanity. Serge Lifar’s Suite en Blanc radiates the style and glamour of pure classical ballet.

Ranskalainen ilta
Jacques Offenbach

The Tales of Hoffmann

19.10.2018 – 20.11.2018

An incredibly inventive look at love problems

A poet details the great loves of his life – we promise you’ll find this story so entertaining that you’d never want it to end. Johannes Erath’s critically-acclaimed direction maintains constant action onstage, while still giving space to Jacques Offenbach’s entrancingly beautiful music.  Premiere in Autumn 2018.
