Munich, 3. July 2024 19:30 to 0:00

The RG Munich attends the lovely belcanto opera  ‘La Sonnambula’ (The Sleepwalker) by Vincenco Bellini (founder of Italian romantic opera) at the beautiful Staatstheater am Gärtnerplatz.

In Italian with German surtitles.

This opera premiered in 1831 in Milan and is Bellini’s best loved, next to ‘Norma’. Wonderful endless melodies, and even a happy ending. The production, first staged in 2015, was unanimously judged brilliant at its premiere. Great singing, too. It was said to prove that ‘the Gärtnerplatz is not Munich’s “second”, but its “other” opera house’ (NMZ). ‘The musical intensity of this acclaimed production should not leave anyone unmoved‘ (Radio Bavaria).
