Discover magnificent operas at the Semperoper

The Magic Flute

Semperoper regularly has performances of the most famous and frequently performed operas in Mozart’s repertoire. This particular piece is about drama, love and hate. The story is set in Egypt, where an evil wizard has captured the queen’s daughter, Pamina. The queen has asked Tamino to save Pamina. Head-over-heels with the girl – who he has only seen on a portrait –, Tamino sets off. It is a fairy tale about the triumph of a forbidden love that wasn't allowed to blossom...

La Bohème

La Bohème is performed in Italian with German and English supertitles. Four poor Bohemian friends lead miserable lives until one of them receives a large sum of money, and the group goes to town to celebrate. One of them, Rodolfo, stays behind, and gets to know one of his neighbours, Mimi, with whom he falls in love. Sadly, it turns out that Mimi is ill. The two become estranged and then find each other again. But by then it is too late...

The Nutcracker

The Nutcracker is all about fear, anxiety, romanticism and violence. One Christmas eve, Marie is given a nutcracker, who immediately captures her heart. Soon, they’re being threatened by a group of warring mice. The nutcracker comes to life and sends soldiers to battle against the mouse king, and the mice disappear. Marie has been saved! Together with her new protector, the girl journeys through a land of sweet dreams, on the way to adulthood.
