General Manager Nikolaus Bachler headlines his final season at the Bayerische Staatsoper with POINT OF INFLECTION. “In his Sonnets to Orpheus, Rainer Maria Rilke describes art as movement, as a process that often ends with the beginning and begins with the end,” explains Nikolaus Bachler. “Following thirteen years as the opera’s General Manager, these sentiments conjure up not just the end, but rather and in particular also the ‘point of inflection’.”  At the heart of the season are thirteen premieres, including two world premieres and four works that had their world premiere in Munich.
