Carmen - G. Bizet
Carmen is undoubtedly one of the most popular and most performed operas in the world. Its premiere in 1875 at the Opéra-Comique in Paris, however, was only a moderate success: The outrageous new realism, the brutality and vehemence in the actors’ actions, and not least the shady milieu, overwhelmed the conventional Parisian audience, which was stuck in old patterns of thought. The opera is set around 1820 in Seville, Andalusia, and is based on the novella of the same name by Prosper Merimée. The libretto was co-produced by Henri Meilhac and Ludovic Halévy (nephew of composer Jacques Fromental Halévy and also cousin of Georges Bizet’s wife). Shortly after its premiere, Carmen began its triumphal march across the world via Vienna and the rest of Europe, a triumph that continues to this day. The theme and plot of this opera inspired numerous artists to create independent works, and various (opera and dance) films as well as ballets were made. Georges Bizet (1838-1875), however, unfortunately did not live to see the triumph of his sensual and passionate masterpiece. Exactly three months to the day after the first performance, he succumbed to a fatal heart attack at the age of only 36.

Vittorio Grigolo
The tenor Vittorio Grigolo was born on February 19, 1977 in Arezzo, Tuscany, and grew up in Rome in a family of music lovers. He discovered a passion for music at the age of 4, then joined the Sistine Chapel Choir at the age of 9, where he remained there for four years as a soloist. Vittorio Grigolo made his opera debut at 13 as Little Shepherd in Tosca at the Rome Opera House, opposite Pavarotti. From then on, he was nicknamed Il Pavarottino (the Little Pavarotti) by the Italian press. Vittorio Grigolo joined the Vienna Opera at the age of 18 before becoming the youngest singer debuting on the stage at La Scala in Milan at 23 for two concerts conducted by Riccardo Muti. Attached to his roots, Vittorio Grigolo distinguished himself in various Verdian roles and having studied at a French college, the tenor developed a great interest in French romantic opera.

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.

Anja Kampe
Anja Kampe studied at the universities of Dresden and Turin and has made a name for herself in the classical music scene, especially with her Wagner interpretations. Born in 1968, the soprano from Thuringia first attracted international attention when she appeared alongside Plácido Domingo in the role of Sieglinde at the Washington Opera. Kampe subsequently took her roles of Kundry, Brünnhilde, Senta or Isolde to the most renowned opera houses in the world, from the Vienna State Opera, the Salzburg Easter Festival, the Berlin State Opera to the legendary Bayreuth Festival. Furthermore, the soprano from Thuringia celebrated successes in the roles of Katerina Ismailova and Minnie (La Fanciulla del West), Leonore (Fidelio) or Lisa (Queen of Spades), among others. In 2018 the soprano was appointed Bavarian Chamber Singer. Kampe thus joins the ranks of successful artist colleagues such as Anja Harteros, Diana Damrau, Christian Gerhaher and Jonas Kaufmann.

L’Elisir d’amore - G. Donizetti
Gaetano Donizetti is said to have written his Love Potion in a record 14 days in 1832 - a commissioned work for the Teatro alla Cannobiana in Milan, regularly performed at all the major houses and considered the prototype par excellence for the opera buffa genre. Pleasing motifs, singable melodies and Donizetti’s unmistakable humor, which repeatedly flashes from the score, are responsible for the tremendous and lasting success of this opera. The Italian masterpiece is also ideally suited for children, young people or opera beginners, since lightness, playfulness and the entertaining libretto drive the colorful hustle and bustle on stage in an entertaining and cheerful manner. The action takes place in the countryside: Nemorino loves Adina, who in turn is flirting with the sergeant Belcore. To win Adina over, Nemorino seeks help from the quack Dulcamara. With Dulcamara’s love potion, Adina is supposed to fall in love with Nemorino... after numerous complications, charlatanry and winking ideas, there is a happy ending for the two young lovers. And every opera lover has one of the most romantic and beautiful tenor arias in his ear: Una furtiva lagrima.
