Late-night performances to accompany the ‘proper operas’
Five operas and their doubles: five opera premieres on the main stage are each given the AMBUSHED FROM BEHIND treatment in the Tischlerei, taken apart, examined, discussed, pimped and put back together in revamped form. The result is a series of evenings that tread a line between musical theatre and concert, performance and installation. Artists of the Deutsche Oper Berlin ensemble come together with guest artists hailing from their own corner of the creative firmament. These ‘outsiders’ bring their own perspectives and responses to the respective opera, helping to generate a new opus within the framework of the old. Artistic director of the Ambushed format is the director, composer and musician Alexandra Holtsch.
