About the Event
Experience Wagner's fantastic work about the fate of a cursed outsider, in a production by director and choreographer Christian Spuck.
Wagner based this, his first opera, on the story of a mysterious mariner, who is doomed to travel the ocean between life and death until the love of a woman releases him. The opera occupies a world of dream images, obsessions, and projections divorced from reality.
Sung in German, with German and English surtitles.

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.
