Barrie Kosky, the Australian artistic director of the Komische Oper, doesn’t do anything halfway. Take his staging of The Magic Flute, which found singers interacting with cartoons. Or his West Side Story, reimagined as a tale of star-crossed German and Turkish lovers in Berlin. Now he tackles Jacques Offenbach’s opera fantastique about a poet tortured by his love for several women. The twist here is that a single soprano plays all three female parts, while multiple performers embody the title character at different stages of his life. Kosky has promised an abstract, disturbing nightmare.
