HANSEL & GRETEL and SWAN LAKE as Christmas Special
The Bayerische Staatsoper and the Bayerisches Staatsballett wish you a Merry Christmas with free streams of two classics over the holidays: from 24 to 26 December, the recordings of Hansel and Gretel and Swan Lake will be available free of charge on STAATSOPER.TV. Afterwards, both streams will be available as usual for 30 days as paid VODs as part of our on-demand programme.
Hansel and Gretel will be sung by members of the State Opera ensemble Emily Pogorelc (Gretel) and Kevin Conners (Crunchy Witch) as well as Tara Erraught (Hansel). Friedrich Haider will conduct the Bayerisches Staatsorchester.
In Swan Lake, Ksenia Ryzhkova makes her Munich role debut as Odette/Odile. The role of Prince Siegfried is performed by Jinhao Zhang, and Emilio Pavan dances the Rothbart. Tom Seligman is on the podium.
