It is a centre of social, cultural and daily life for the people of Hamburg and for visitors from all over the world.From the end of the 17th to the mid-18th century, the Hanseatic city was known throughout Europe for its musical output. During the Second World War, the auditorium was completely destroyed by a bombing raid in 1943, but it was quickly rebuilt a few years later. Even today one of the main motivations of the Hamburg State Opera is to make its productions accessible to the broadest possible audience. Its repertoire ranges from classical to contemporary opera and ballet performances.Here is just one of the highlights for 2019Gluck’s Orphée et EurydiceThe Italian Orfeo ed Euridice was the first of Gluck’s great ‘reform’ operas. Orphée et Eurydice includes some of Gluck’s most loved music, from Orphée’s tender ‘Objet de mon amour’ and ‘J’ai perdu mon Eurydice’ to the spectacular ‘L’espoir renaît dans mon âme’, added for the French premiere. The chorus also assumes a role of great importance, particularly in their roles as the shades and Furies of the underworld. But the opera is perhaps most celebrated for its innovative dance music; two of its many highlights include the ‘Dance of the Furies’ and the ‘Dance of the Blessed Spirits’. The Hamburg Ballet, the Philharmonic State Orchestra of Hamburg and the Choir of the Hamburg State Opera. Dates for the performances at Großes Haus are as follows – all at 7.30pm:February 6th, 9th, 12th, 16th and 19th June 23rd.For more information about the Staatsoper Hamburg and for booking tickets for 2019 please contact us.Tel +44 (0) 203 302 7323 Fax: +44 (0) 020 7657 3390Website: www.showcaseoperaandevents.comE-mail: info@showcaseoperaandevents.comHamburg Staatsoper photo by Andreas Praefcke
