Die Zusammenhänge moderner Inszenierungen von historischen wie auch neuen Opern sind heutzutage selten offensichtlich und auf den ersten Blick erkennbar. Um diesen Schleier zu heben, wollen wir grundsätzliche Fragen des Werkes, ebenso wie Hintergründe einer Aufführung besprechen. Der gemeinschaftliche Austausch und das Interpretieren des subjektiv Erlebten unter professioneller Anleitung hilft den Opernabend besser einzuordnen und neue Perspektiven zu entdecken.

Daher bietet die Bayerische Staatsoper ein Seminar zu ausgewählten Inszenierungen mit Jürgen Schläder, Professor für Musiktheater an der LMU München, an. Das Seminar bietet die Möglichkeit zum Dialog über das Stück und leistet damit nicht nur eine wertvolle Hinführung, sondern insbesondere auch eine nachbereitende Auseinandersetzung zu Ihrem persönlichen Opernerlebnis.

Der erste Termin dient jeweils der Vor-, der zweite der Nachbereitung. Der Besuch des Dialogs berechtigt nicht zum Besuch der Opernvorstellung.

Biographies

Zubin Mehta was born in 1936 and grew up in a musical family in his native Bombay. After first studying medicine for two semesters he concentrated on music in Hans Swarowsky's conducting class at the Vienna academy.

Zubin Mehta won the Liverpool International Conducting Competition in 1958 and was also a prize-winner at the Koussevitzky Competition in Tanglewood. By his mid-twenties he had already conducted both the Vienna and Berlin Philharmonic Orchestras and retains close ties with both.

Zubin Mehta was Music Director of the Montreal Symphony Orchestra from 1961 to 1967 becoming Music Director of the Los Angeles Philharmonic Orchestra in 1962, a post he retained until 1978. In 1969 he also became Music Adviser to the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra and was made Music Director of that orchestra in 1977. In 1981 he was made Music Director for life. Zubin Mehta has conducted nearly two thousand concert performances with this extraordinary ensemble on tours spanning five continents. In 1978 he became Music Director of the New York Philharmonic commencing a tenure lasting 13 years, the longest in the orchestra's history and, since 1985, he has been chief conductor of the Maggio Musicale in Florence.

Zubin Mehta made his debut as an opera conductor with Tosca in Montreal in 1964. Since then he has conducted at the Metropolitan Opera New York, the Vienna State Opera, the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden, La Scala Milan, and the opera houses of Montreal, Chicago and Florence as well as at the Salzburg Festival.

Zubin Mehta's list of awards and honours is extensive and includes the "Nikisch-Ring" from the Vienna Philharmonic as well as having been made, in 2001, an honorary member of the orchestra. He is an honorary citizen of both Florence and Tel Aviv and was made an honorary member of the Vienna State Opera in 1997. In 1999 Zubin Mehta was presented the "Lifetime Achievement Peace and Tolerance Award" of the United Nations by Lea Rabin. In April 2001 President Chirac created him "Chevalier de la Legion d'Honneur". In January 2004 the Munich Philharmonic Orchestra bestowed the title of "Honorary Conductor" on Zubin Mehta.

Zubin Mehta has been Music Director of the Bavarian State Opera and the Bavarian State Orchestra from 1998 to 2006. Quite apart from his commitments and responsibilities for the musical leadership of new productions, repertory performances and concerts associated with this position, he has also led the State Orchestra on two major European tours and the whole opera company on tours to Japan.
