Following the enthusiastic reception of Korngold’s The Miracle of Heliane, which was celebrated by Opernwelt magazine as the »Rediscovery of the Year« in 2018, and which received the Opus Klassik Award 2020, Christof Loy now tackles another rarity from the early 20th century at the Deutsche Oper Berlin.
For Francesca da Rimini, he teams up again with Sara Jakubiak. After playing the title role in Heliane, this is her second venture into the psyche of a passionate woman loving to the utmost.

The performance received enthusiastic reviews in the German media coverage:
“The cast would triumph on any stage worldwide.” – rbb kultur
“Carlo Rizzi conducts […] with the greatest diligence and energy… a wonderful discovery.” – br klassik
“… perhaps the best streaming premiere in these miserable times of pandemic.” – Süddeutsche Zeitung
