About the Event
Discover Battistelli's new work 'Il Teorema di Pasolini' in premiered at the Deutsche Oper Berlin.
With his 1968 film 'Teorema,' which was also published in novel form, Pier Paolo Pasolini formulated a radical reckoning with the bourgeoisie: the upper‐middle‐class family at the center of the work is held together only by conventions, and the erotic seductive power of a stranger alone is enough to cause this ossified system to break apart. Thus, 'Teorema' is at the same time the most impressive realization of Pasolini's basic thesis that sexual liberation of the individual and the transformation of society are interconnected — even if the sexual 'awakening experiences' set off different reactions in the members of the family.

Deutsche Oper Berlin
Deutsche Oper Berlin is the biggest opera house in the German capital, and a member of the Berlin Opera Foundation established in the early 1900s. The original building was destroyed during the Second World War, but was eventually replaced, and the new theater opened in 1961 - six weeks after construction began on the Berlin Wall. Serving West Berlin, its sober, linear design avoids anything that might distract vistiors from the performance. The repertoire of the theater focuses on the great classics such as Mozart, Verdi and Strauss, but frequently presents contemporary opera as well. The Chorus of the Deutsche Oper has been named 'Chorus of the Year' many times for its outstanding performances.
