Travel Tip: Opera in Germany
Aschemond or The Fairy Queen (World premiere)

Aschemond or The Fairy Queen (World premiere): By Helmut Oehring
BERLIN  •  Staatsoper unter den Linden  •  Ongoing

Helmut Oehring: Aschemond or The Fairy Queen (World premiere)
using music by Henry Purcell 
Concept and libretto by Stefanie Wördemann with texts by William Shakespeare, Heinrich Heine, Adalbert Stifter and Helmut Oehring

An ode to the transience, dark and urgent: Helmut Oehring’s current musical theatre work revolves around the existential timeless issues of love and death - with the artistic attitude that today's perception of Early music and its themes, experiences a new reference to reality, especially in the contact with contemporary composition.
