Sommeroper Festival Schloss Britz 2022

Great art in a small form - a newly discovered opera pleasure continues the series of baroque rarities such as Pergolesi's "Maid as Mistress" and Hasse's "Pyramus and Thisbe", which already found an enthusiastic audience in Britz.

As part of the "DRAUSSENSTADT" initiative, the Paul Hindemith Music School and its supporter associations invite you to the Britz Summer Opera for a lasting cultural experience in the Kulturstall at the idyllic Britz Castle & Gutshof:

Mark Antony, known as the conqueror of Egypt, will fight out his adventures here. Only this time he is not shown on the battlefield, but in hot-blooded hand-to-hand combat with the shrewd shepherdess Pimpinella and her famous rival Cleopatra. The tragi-comic dalliance was even echoed in the “Magic Flute”, because in Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart the singing of Papageno and Papagena is reminiscent of the many, many future “Sabinerlein” and “Römerlein” from Hasse’s lively final duet.

The opera collage from the intermezzo “Pimpinella and Mark Antonius” and parts of the serenade “Mark Antonius and Cleopatra” (world premieres in Dresden 1741 and Naples 1725) will be performed with the new German text version by Bettina Bartz and Jürgen Hinz.
