Season 2018-19

New season 2018-19

Danish National Opera presents the season 2018-19:
The season opens in August 2018 with the already-announced The Passenger, directed by Danish National Opera’s new General Manager and Artistic Director Philipp Kochheim himself. After Weinberg’s holocaust opera The Passenger at Musikhuset Aarhus, the season’s touring productions will take the public to Ancient Egypt in August Enna’s Cleopatra, a seedy tango club in Astor Piazzolla’s María de Buenos Aires and a bullring in Seville in Georges Bizet’s Carmen. The very smallest operagoers will be introduced to the opera genre with a poetic baby opera, HeartBeat, by Sam Glazer.

"Please allow yourself to be seduced by what Alexander Kluge called the “powerhouse of emotions” and discover that opera is not a dusty museum, but a contemporary art-form that has many surprises in stall and relevant stories to tell!

I am looking forward to welcome you in one of our venues all around Denmark! Let us celebrate together the immortal beauty of opera.”

Philipp Kochheim, operachef Den Jyske Opera
