"Lorenzo Da Ponte's libretto and Mozart's music were to transform the stock characters of the opera buffa tradition into real human beings, making Le Nozze di Figaro one of the most sophisticated operas of all time. Christoph Marthaler's take on Mozart's classic is both daringly original and highly contemporary, the setting transposed to a wedding-dress shop lit with neon lights and a shabby register office"--Original container

Tristan und Isolde by Richard Wagner( Visual )

Wagner's masterpiece, the ultimate symbol of mutual love unhappy, staged by Christoph Marthaler in Bayreuth. We know the story: Tristan and Isolde, who travel in Cornwall to marry Isolde to King Marke, accidentally drink the "Herbez wine"--Which Wagner calls the "love potion," and that Isolde's mother had intended for future spouses. The effect is immediate: under the influence of magic, Tristan and Isolde fall passionately in love, defying the laws and King Marke. One can not leave the other without hurting the beloved by his/her absence ... The themes of Tristan are probably the most famous of the musical repertoire, and its opening, his prelude to the third act, and the final aria of Isolde dying are frequently integrated into concert programs. More recently, Lars von Trier used it as the soundtrack of his film Melancholia (2011). Created in 1865 by Hans von Bülow, Tristan has been preoccupying Wagner for many years, from writing the libretto to its first representation. Temple of Wagnerian opera, Bayreuth hosts Christoph Marthaler that features this Tristan with the colors of the 1950s. The success of Wagner's Tristan and Isolde refreshes the adventures of medieval lovers of Cornwall, told with passion by writers like Beroul, Thomas, Marie de France and Gottfried von Strassburg in the 12th and 13th centuries. A few years later, the French medievalist Joseph Bedier rewrote the story, mixing different versions of the legend, some of which have survived only in fragments

Kátia Kabanová : at the Salzburg Festival( Visual )

1 edition published in 1998 in Czech and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Christophe Marthaler stages Leoš Janáček's opera Kátia Kabanová at the Salzburg Festival, accompanied by the music director Sylvain Cambreling. Kátia Kabanová is an opera in three acts sung in Czech, which libretto by Vincenc Červinka was inspired by Alexander Ostrovsky's play The Storm. The story takes place on the banks of the Volga. Kátia, a young, sensible and sincere woman, is married to Tichon Kabanov, whose mother profoundly despises her. She is in love with Boris and dreams of going away from the solitude of her home to experience liberty and true love. One night, when her husband is away, she secretly meets Boris, and the two lovers tell each other about their feelings. But Kátia, tormented by guilt, confesses everything when her husband comes back. Pressure and rejection by society constrain her to commit a tragic act to end her suffering. This opera by Leoš Janáček was premiered in 1921. It contains all the natural elements that Janáček loves such as wind, water, storms ... as well as a presentation of profound and true human feelings. This opera brilliantly combines Russian theater and romantic and post-romantic Czech music
A day of real madness, or Le nozze Di Figaro( Visual )

1 edition published in 2006 in French and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Opera buffa in four acts (1786), Music by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Libretto by Lorenzo da Ponte after Le Mariage de Figaro by Pierre-Augustin Caron de Beaumarchais Mozart's famous opera is here given a modern interpretation while staying faithful to the original score and libretto, which proves the timeless nature of this story, originally written for theater by Beaumarchais. The action takes place in the wedding office of a city hall. Actors are dressed in modern costumes and use our everyday life accessories: Susanna listens to her walkman during Cherubino's aria and Count Almaviva uses his recliner as a seduction tool! The most striking element of this staging is perhaps the "recitativist," a concept invented Christoph Marthaler to transmit the importance of Da Ponte's texts. Recitatives are not played on harpsichord but on an electronic keyboard that is on the stage and alternates from the classical sound of the harpsichord to the harmonica, accordion or even sound effects

Christoph Marthaler hat im Januar 1992 mit "Murx den Europäer! Murx ihn! Murx ihn! Murx ihn! Murx ihn ab!" für viele das Lebensgefühl der zu Ende gehenden DDR getroffen: die Fatalität, das Absurde, das Warten, die Bürokratie, die Undurchschaubarkeit. Eine Zustandsbeschreibung, die offenbar nicht in die Jahre kam, also eine Welt war, die vielleicht für den europäischen Menschen schlechthin Gültigkeit hatte. Marthalers erste Arbeit an der Volksbühne war vierzehn Jahre lang fester Bestandteil des Repertoires und ligt jetzt endlich auf DVD vor
