Anna Netrebkos Traum-Elsa in Dresdner Lohengrin

Anna Netrebko gab ihre erste Elsa in Dresden unter der Leitung von Christian Thielemann. Es war eine bemerkenswerte Vorstellung, die man nicht vergisst.

Folk rhythms and changing times in Dresden's Bartered Bride

What brought real distinction and authenticity to the evening, as so often in this house, was the outstanding playing of the Staatskapelle conducted by Tomaš Netopil. From the start of the overture with its rapidly scurrying fugato for strings and pointed phrasing from the woodwind one felt the true sense of Smetana’s Czech inflected rhythms and harmonies

Fidelio an enduring ode to freedom in Dresden

The Dresden Semperoper premiered a new production of Fidelio scarcely a month before the fall of East Germany. Much has changed in the intervening decade and a bit, but the Semperoper is still playing the same Fidelio. It doesn't take much knowledge of recent German history to understand why it was a sensation at the time.

A baroque rarity with a modern twist

Johann Adolf Hasse (1699-1783) was a renowned opera composer of the eighteenth century. As the Kapellmeister at the Dresden court from 1731 to 1763, he composed a large number of Italian operas and his fame spread all over Europe. His wife, the equally famous mezzo-soprano Faustina Bordoni (who also sang in Handel’s operas in London), starred in many of his operas.
