The monthly Bonus
A perfect premiere night at the Deutsche Oper – The bonus in March
Thomas Mann’s world-famous novella provides the template for Benjamin Britten’s final and most personal opera, DEATH IN VENICE. A successful, ageing writer, Gustav von Aschenbach, travels to Venice in an attempt to break his writer’s block. On the beach he observes a boy, Tadzio, who triggers in him futile yet all-consuming feelings of passion, which in turn plunge him into crisis and leads to his undoing. The opera is an extraordinary work not just for its autobiographical parallels between Britten and the Gustav von Aschenbach character but also for the circumstances in which it came to be written, which are inextricably linked to the themes of the story: Britten was trying to stave off his own approaching death by pressing ahead with the composition. Arguing that his first priority was to complete the opera, he deliberately and repeatedly postponed a potentially life-saving heart operation. After Verdi‘s OTELLO [1991], Wagner‘s TRISTAN AND ISOLDE [2011] and his collaboration on MORNING AND EVENING [2016], Graham Vick returns for his fourth production at the Deutsche Oper Berlin. Donald Runnicles continues his presentation of Britten works with DEATH IN VENICE, bringing the opera back to the Bismarckstraße after an absence of over 40 years.
