Part of:



The magnificent magic of Baroque theatre on the stage of the Komische Oper Berlin: In the acclaimed production by Norwegian theatre magician Stefan Herheim, under the musical direction of Baroque specialist Konrad Junghänel, Handel's opera Xerxes becomes a feast for the eyes, ears and all the senses. With great opulence and attention to detail, Herheim tells the story of the powerful Persian king Xerxes, who though powerful in body, remains powerless in love. A humorous play on performance conventions that is filled with the spirit of Handel's time and yet relevant for our times. "A theatrical miracle that proves how education and complex, historically aware thinking can increase our capacity for pleasure” [FAZ].
