Le Nozze di Figaro - W. A. Mozart
“Le nozze di figaro” marked the beginning of the happy and fruitful collaboration between W. A. Mozart (1756-1791) and his librettist Lorenzo Da Ponte, which was to bring both success and artistic satisfaction. Although Da Ponte, as a precautionary measure and in view of the sharp censorship, dispensed with the biting sarcasm of Beaumarchais’ original, which served as the model for the new opera buffa, there was still enough fuel in it to deal with a major theme of the time: The examination of the complex relationships between the social classes, or rather the discrimination of the lower classes by the upper ones. While Count Almaviva embodies a reactionary representative of the nobility, the shrewd Figaro is presented as a representative of the rising third class. Two forces face each other here, each claiming power in pre-revolutionary Europe. Mozart found in this passionate and ironic piece so much of the shame and disappointments he had experienced during his artistic life that he let all his bitter experiences and mental anguish flow into the composition. Despite the explosive theme, the premiere performance in Vienna in 1786 under the reign of Emperor Joseph II was a great success. Today "Le nozze di figaro" is one of the most popular and most performed operas worldwide.

Arabella - R. Strauss
A good two decades after “Rosenkavalier”, Richard Strauss (1864-1949) and Hugo von Hofmannsthal put another romantic comedy on paper and onto the big stage with “Arabella”. It was to be their last collaboration: von Hoffmannsthal died in 1929, Strauss’ work on the score was in full swing. “Arabella” was premiered at the Dresden State Opera in 1933. As in "Rosenkavalier," illustrious 19th-century Viennese society serves as the setting for the entertaining love tangle. The retired cavalry captain Count Waldner has his glory days behind him: addicted to gambling, he has gambled his head off. As a consequence, he lives with his wife and his two daughters Arabella and Zdenka in a third-rate hotel, hoping that Arabella will make a good match and thus save the family’s financial situation. But although there is no shortage of aristocratic suitors, Arabella turns down all offers. Much to the annoyance of her younger sister Zdenka, sent to work by her parents disguised as a boy, who recently has her own eye on one of the suitors. Instead, Arabella falls in love with a mysterious stranger. Of course, there is a great deal of confusion, until finally both sisters are reeling in the happiness of love and the father is delighted to discover that the stranger is the rich heir of a former comrade - so nothing stands in the way of his future at the card table.

Christian Thielemann
Christian Thielemann has been one of the great German conductors of our time for years. Born in 1959 in what was then West Berlin, he began his professional career in his native city at the Deutsche Oper under none other than Herbert von Karajan (1908-1989). Via various stations in Karlsruhe and Düsseldorf, among others, he moved to Nuremberg in 1988 as - at that time - the youngest General Music Director. Nine years later, Thielemann returned to Berlin to the Deutsche Oper, then led the Munich Philharmonic from 2004 to 2011, in each case also in the positions of general music director. Thielemann has been involved with the Bayreuth Festival since 2010. In 2015, he was appointed music director there. In the 2012/13 season, he moved to Dresden to join the Sächsische Staatskapelle, and in 2013 he additionally took on the position of artistic director at the Salzburg Easter Festival. Christian Thielemann maintains close ties with the Berlin and Vienna Philharmonic Orchestras. Thielemann has received numerous awards and honors for his achievements, including his honorary doctorate from the Hochschule für Musik ´Franz Liszt` Weimar, the Richard Wagner Prize, the Prize of the Foundation for the Promotion of the Semper Opera, and honorary membership of the Royal Academy of Music in London and the Gustav Mahler Association Hamburg.
