The Grand Duchess of Gerolstein

Barrie Kosky – following La belle Hélène at the Komische Oper Berlin in 2014 and the highly acclaimed production of Orpheus in the Underworld at the 2019 Salzburg Festival – tackles yet another hit by the masterful craftsman Jacques Offenbach. Kosky sparks off an amusing play on gender roles and double-dealing etiquette centered on the resolute Grand Duchess.
