TANNHÄUSER: Season premiere in May

Our media feature provides insights into Romeo Castellucci’s staging

Art or junk? Romeo Castellucci’s staging of Richard Wagner’s Tannhäuser caused quite a stir with audiences and the media after its premiere in May 2017. Celebrated as “performance of the century” and disdained as “absolute rubbish” – so the best would be for you to decide yourself about our Tannhäuser. Romeo’s staging returns to our stage for three performances in May.
