OPERA AT THE FESTSPIELHAUS THE TALES OF HOFFMANN JACQUES OFFENBACH What do we long for when we love The author, composer and draftsman E. T. A. Hoffmann scrutinised our fantasies and dreams, and peered into the abyss as few others have done. Who does Hoffmann want to love The doll, the singer, the prostitute Or in fact just himself Jacques Offenbach reworked the French play as something midway between grand opéra, operetta and Romantic blood-curdler. Stefan Herheim, one of the most exciting directors of the day, sets out to explore the bizarre mechanics of human existence.

A small man suffering from toothache. The fable of the ant and the cricket. A tooth that is removed with a wrench and lands in a stewardess’s bowl of soup. A family that makes a phone call from the gap in the teeth. Roland Schimmelpfennig’s theatrical fable Golden Dragon, which premiered at Vienna’s Burgtheater in 2009, has been adapted by the Hungarian composer Peter Eötvös as a many-layered piece of music theatre, in which five performers play 18 roles. After its world premiere at Oper Frankfurt in Elisabeth Stöppler’s staging, the most recent stage work by one of the most successful opera composers of our time is now being performed at the Bregenz Festival. For the production, the world renowned Ensemble Modern is returning to Lake Constance after a ten-year absence. Music theatre (2014) Libretto by Roland Schimmelpfennig adapted by Peter Eötvös PREMIERE 19 August 2015 – 8.00 p.m. PERFORMANCE 21 August – 8.00 p.m. Werkstattbühne DURATION 1½ hours (without break) PRICE EUR 28 | Werkstattbühne First performance in Austria, Co-production of Ensemble Modern and Oper Frankfurt OPERA STUDIO AT KORNMARKT COSÌ FAN TUTTE WOLFGANG AMADEUS MOZART Four singers begin a game about love and fidelity, directed by the overbearing Alfonso, egged on by the wily Despina. Will either of the women succumb to the men’s temptations Being unfaithful is not seriously an option for any of them. Believing they have nothing to fear, they are all the more willing to take risks in the adventure they embark on. Yet the music makes them more and more the plaything of their desires. They don’t want to go back any more. It’s no longer they themselves who are in control of their feelings and behaviour. In the festival’s newly established Opera Studio, six young singers – five of them from the Opera Studio at the Staatsoper, Berlin – team up with director Jörg Lichtenstein and conductor Hartmut Keil and enter The School for Lovers, following the opera’s subtitle.
