And, as always, we will do it in a way that no one else can–with best seats in all venues, the finest guide in the city, Deluxe rooms at the 5-star Bayerischer Hof Hotel, and superb meals and daytime events.
- Thanks to a court tradition, opera found a home in Munich in 1653; since then its music-historical and sociopolitical development has continued in a way unparalleled anywhere else, worldwide. The Bayerische Staatsoper, with some 600,000 persons attending its over 450 performances each year, makes a major contribution to Munich’s reputation as.
- The Bavarian State Opera is one of the world’s leading opera houses, with over 400 performances and 600,000 visitors yearly. Its history spans over three centuries and helped shape Munich as we know it today, a culture-savvy metropolis with unparalleled elegance and flair.
- Dec 20, 2016 The National Theater, Munich's Opera house. Opera houses are more than just big buildings that hold musical performances. It may not seem like it, but these vast venues hold keys to a city’s past and, by taking a deeper look at the opera houses, they reveal a lot about the city’s culture.
We will hear three Wagner operas during our stay: Jonas Kaufmann resumes his duties as The Tenor of His Generation in a Krzysztof Warlikowski production of Wagner’s Tristan und Isolde, opposite the the sublime Anja Harteros; Anja Kamp and Bryn Terfel are featured in Der Fliegende Holländer; Georg Zeppenfeld, Klaus Florian Vogt
and Christian Gerhaher feature in Tannhäuser under the baton of Simone Young. In addition to Wagner, we hear a Puccini classic: Anna Netrebko always shines in Munich, and we will witness her sure-to-be-memorable turn in Turandot. Rounding out our operatic performances, Kristine Opolais stars in Dvořák’s Rusalka under the baton of James Gaffigan. We also hope to include a chamber concert in the tiny jewel that is the Cuvilliés‐Theater.
We have secured our usual Deluxe rooms at the Bayerischer Hof Hotel, and we will enjoy superb cuisine (full breakfast daily plus 8 additional meals) in a mix of elegant and traditional restaurants. Our touring will include the best visual art experiences to be had in Munich, as well as a day trip to the UNECO World Heritage city of Regensburg.
