Gabriel Feltz returns to Komische Oper Berlin to conduct the premiere of Marco Štorman’s production of Luigi Nono’s Intolleranza (1961). The two-act opera is a powerful piece of political theatre: a protest and call to action against intolerance, oppression and attacks on human dignity. The new production, with transformative stage design by Márton Ágh features Sean Panikkar (emigrants), Gloria Rehm (his mate), Deniz Uzun (A woman), Tom Eric Lie (An Algerian), Tijl Faveyts (A tortured), Josephine Mindus (Soprano Solo) and Ilse Ritter (angel of history) with the Orchestra and Chorus of Komische Oper Berlin and Vocalconsort Berlin. Intolleranza runs through 3 October.
Feltz continues his 2022/23 season conducting the National Theatre and State Opera Prague’s premiere of Andreas Homoki’s Komische Oper Berlin production of Richard Strauss’s Der Rosenkavalier. The acclaimed production features set design by Frank Philipp Schlößmann and costumes by Gideon Davey. It stars Petra Alvarez Šimková (Marschallin), Timo Riihonen (Baron Ochs), Arnheiður Eiríksdóttir (Octavian), Martin Bárta (Faninal) and Vera Talerko (Sophie) with the Prague State Opera Orchestra and Chorus. The production premiere on 24 November – 29 December.
Gabriel Feltz is General Music Director of the Dortmund Opera and Chief Conductor of the Dortmund Philharmonic Orchestra and Belgrade Philharmonic. Recent operatic highlights include the beginning of a new Ring Cycle in Dortmund (starting with The Valkyrie) directed by Peter Konwitschny; Cologne Opera’s centenary celebration of Korngold’s Die tote Stadt, directed by Tatjana Gürbaca; new production of Walter Braunfels Die Vögel, also in Cologne.
