Two Premieres at the Start of the 2020–21 Season

The 202021 season of the Bayerische Staatsoper begins three weeks earlier than usual on 1 September 2020 with the world premiere of Marina Abramovićs opera project 7 Deaths of Maria Callas. The opera studio production Mignon also celebrates its premiere. Frank Castorf's production of Die Vögel remains unchanged, followed by the new production of Falstaff, which was originally planned for the 2020 Munich Opera Festival. The premiere of Luca Francesconi's Timon of Athens is postponed indefinitely. Discover all the new dates here  including lots of Mozart and song recitals with Jonas Kaufmann and Christian Gerhaher! We are looking forward to the season and to your visit!
