In the 2019/20 season, the Young Ensemble of Theater an der Wien (JET) brings four new productions to the stage at the Wiener Kammeroper. One of them is dedicated to the year's birthday boy Ludwig van Beethoven: to mark the composer's 250th birthday, the commissioned work Genia oder das Lächeln der Maschine by Tscho Theissing and Kristine Tornquist will be performed. The opera in two acts deals mainly with Beethoven's great life themes of art, freedom and the future, as well as with his difficult and mysterious love relationships.
The premiere of Faust by Charles Gounod is in the hands of director and puppeteer Nikolaus Habjan. At the center of this opéra lyrique is a young girl, Gretchen, who believes in great love, is seduced, and finally broken by it. Spiriting audiences away to the Baroque are Handel's operaGiustino, one of the composer's most theatrical and charming operas, and Christoph Willibald Gluck's Orphée et Eurydice – which was considered revolutionary for its time, in the second half of the 18th century.
The four new productions are accompanied by the so-called "Jet specials", in which the Young Ensemble of Theater an der Wien presents itself. On the program are Carmen in a new musical production by Tscho Theissing, Kálmán gegen Lehár with arias, duets and operetta scenes, Dichterliebe with music by Franz Schumann, and Don Giovanni in progress with music by Mozart.
