Missed the seven new Komische Oper productions from the past season? Here’s your chance to catch them all in one week. Each evening is accompanied with a musical and culinary program, an introduction by the opera’s dramaturges to understand the piece in context, and a talk with artists after the show. Particularly recommended is director Barrie Kosky’s celebrated take on Castor et Pollux, an impressive staging of the French baroque classic that he created two years ago for the English National Opera London and for which he received the Laurence Olivier Award 2012.
