Penetrating Schreker’s kaleidoscopic score

Die Gezeichneten © Iko Freese | drama-berlin.de
Franz Schreker’s Die Gezeichneten (The Branded One) is an unsettling work given the storyline’s background of abduction and clandestine sexual abuse. Calixto Bieito, as expected, eschews ambiguity regarding what goes on behind the scenes, and casts even the titular cripple Alviano Salvago in a damning light.

Calixto Bieito sets Monteverdi’s L’incoronazione di Poppea in a hedonist, decadent society whose citizens are defined by their egotism, ambition and sexual exploits.

Toy Story: Calixto Bieito stages Die Gezeichneten

Michael Nagy (Count Tamare) and Peter Hoare (Alviano) © Iko Freese | drama-berlin.de
The Spanish director offers a controversial angle but tones it down to focus on dark psychology rather than spectacle in his staging of Schrecker's hothouse opera.

Horse and Carthage: The Trojans in Nuremberg

A typically thought-provoking production of The Trojans from Calixto Bieito combines with a thrilling musical performance to compensate for a heavily fileted version of Berlioz's magnum opus.
