SAISON 21/22

Who are we?
Dear Friends,

“Do you know how it will be?” murmur the Norns in Wagner's Götterdämmerung - hoping and fearing for the future of the gods and humanity. We, on the other hand, look to the new season with confidence, full of motivation and anticipation to finally be able to perform for you again! The focus of the coming season: the prelude to Wagner's Ring des Nibelungen with Das Rheingold and Die Walküre under the musical direction of Cornelius Meister. In Wagner's tradition of the “total work of art” are Humperdinck's Hansel and Gretel and Antonín Dvořák's Rusalka - two fairytale operas in completely new productions by Axel Ranisch and Bastian Kraft. At the beginning of the season there is Paul Dessau's Brecht setting The Condemnation of Lucullus, a colorful score that the music theater collective Hauen und Stechen will question anew together with conductor Bernhard Kontarsky. In addition, Antonio Vivaldi's oratorio Juditha triumphans, directed by Silvia Costa, is finally premiering - a project that had to be broken off in the first pandemic lockdown during its final rehearsals. With Schumann's Faust scenes, directed by Marco Štorman, we will then leave the opera house - where is still a secret!

With kind regards
Viktor Schoner

What does the new concert season bring?
Dear Friends,

The concert program for 2021/22 is a sign of the confidence we have in our artists. The musicians of Staatsorchester Stuttgart are looking forward to the upcoming season. The orchestra is bubbling with creativity, irrepressible motivation and pleasure in creating together; the result is a wonderful subscription series and special concerts. Each guest in our symphony concerts have a special, sometimes life-influencing relationship to the listed works. This results in numerous references - with music as the focus. I cordially invite you to be there and hear for yourself!

Yours sincerely,

Cornelius Master
General Music Director of Staatsoper Stuttgart and Staatsorchester Stuttgart
