1819 Season

21 December 2018 > 3 January 2019
Opéra des Nations
Gaetano Donizetti

Le convenienze ed inconvenienze teatrali

This dramma giocoso in two acts transports us into the world of opera, with its madness, whims and stars. It’s a funny work, a satire of the lyrical theatre, best discovered during the year-end festivities.

12 & 13 January 2019
Opéra des Nations
China National Peking Opera Company

Peking Opera - The Fantastic Journey of Sun Wukong

There are few opportunities, outside of China, to indulge in the refined pleasures of this genre which mixes song, music, dance, drama and martial arts. A series of archetypal characters is usually used to bring to life episodes of Chinese history or folk tales.

18 > 20 January 2019
Young audiences
Opéra des Nations
Gaetano Donizetti

L'Elisir d’amore for kids

L’Elisir d’amore is a magical work which achieves a perfect balance between the comic effect of the libretto and the subtlety of the musical depiction of loving sentiment. Come by yourself or with your family and rediscover this tale in a shorter version, thanks to the presence of a narrator.

12 February > 17 March 2019
Grand Théâtre de Genève
Richard Wagner

Der Ring des Nibelungen

Beyond Geneva’s borders, nobody has yet forgotten the Tetralogy of the duo Dieter Dorn and Jürgen Rose. On a bare stage a highly credible story develops, which could even portray Richard Wagner as a teacher. However, behind this very obvious minimalism, magic comes into play and the myth remains intact. The return to the place de Neuve will be marked by the resumption of this emblematic production.
