In November, two new productions are on the programme of the ARTE Opera season: Firstly, Richard Strauss' last opera "Capriccio" from the Semperoper Dresden - an opera about opera as an art form: it depicts the creation of a musical drama with wise cheerfulness and full knowledge of this genre of theatre. Under Christian Thielemann, Camilla Nylund and Georg Zeppenfeld can be experienced in the leading roles.

From the Vienna State Opera comes Herbert Fritsch's new production of "Il barbiere di Siviglia". The director, actor and media artist Herbert Fritsch has assembled an absolutely star-studded ensemble, with Juan Diego Flórez as Count Almaviva, Ildar Abdrazakov as Don Basilio, Vasilisa Berzhanskaya as Rosina and Étienne Dupuis in the role of Figaro.

Both new productions can be experienced on ARTE Concert as part of the current ARTE Opera season - an offer that ARTE presents in partnership with leading opera houses from all over Europe since 2018 - available worldwide and with subtitles in six languages.
