Programme
Overview

Karina Canellakis, celebrated internationally for her emotionally charged performances, technical mastery and interpretive depth, is one of the most sought-after conductors of her generation. She is principal conductor of the Netherlands Radio Philharmonic Orchestra and principal guest conductor of the London Philharmonic Orchestra. This season Karina will be a guest artist-in-residence at the famous Vienna Musikverein and will conduct four different orchestras: the Vienna Symphony Orchestra, the ORF Radio Symphony Orchestra Vienna, the London Philharmonic and the Netherlands Radio Philharmonic. The four programs present a range of famous works, including Shostakovich's powerful 8th Symphony, Janacek's Glagolitic Mass and Beethoven's "Eroica" Symphony. Karina's 23-24 guest engagements include her debut with the New York Philharmonic as well as return invitations to the Boston Symphony and Cleveland Orchestras, San Francisco Symphony, Los Angeles Philharmonic, Rundfunk-Sinfonieorchester Berlin and NDR Elbphilharmonie. After last season's highly successful tour of Germany with the London Philharmonic and Daniil Trifonov, Karina is leading the orchestra again to Munich, Athens and Vienna. In the Concertgebouw Amsterdam and the Tivoli-Vredenburg in Utrecht, she presents exciting contemporary pieces and commissioned works as well as well-known masterpieces with the Dutch Radio Philharmonic. One of the special highlights is a concert performance of Wagner's Siegfried as part of the renowned Zaterdag matinee series. After the great successes of "Kat'a Kabánova" and "The Cunning Little Vixen" with the Dutch Radio Philharmonic in previous seasons, she continues her series of Janáček operas with "The Makropulos Affair". She will also conduct “Der Rosenkavalier” for the Santa Fe Opera in summer 2024. Her concert performances of Wagner's "Die Walküre", "Tristan und Isolde" and "Siegfried" received critical acclaim, and she conducted critically acclaimed productions of Tchaikovsky's "Eugene Onegin", Mozart's "Don Giovanni", "The Magic Flute", "Le nozze di Figaro", David Lang's "the loser" and Peter Maxwell Davies' "The Hogboon".

The Egyptian soprano Fatma Said studied at the Hanns Eisler University of Music in Berlin and at the Accademia del Teatro alla Scala in Milan. Described as a “discovery” by the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, Fatma Said presents herself not only in opera houses and on stages, but also in a humanitarian capacity as an ambassador for culture and education in her homeland. In 2016 she made her sensational role debut as Pamina in Mozart's “Magic Flute” at the Teatro alla Scala under the direction of Adam Fischer. Fatma Said has a reputation as an exceptionally talented musician and was a BBC Radio 3 New Generation Artist, signing an exclusive contract with Warner Classics in 2019. Last season, Fatma Said performed, among other things, Mahler's Fourth Symphony and Fauré's Reqiuem, as well as recital performances at the Wigmore Hall and the Bayerischer Rundfunk radio station, as well as in China with the Teatro alla Scala as Pamina.

Highlights of the 2020/21 season include performances with the Orchester Philharmonique de Monte-Carlo and the Orchester national de France, a gala concert at the Deutsche Oper Berlin, recitals at the Wigmore Hall and at the Victoria de los Ángeles Festival Barcelona. Other highlights include Mozart's Reqiuem at the BBC Proms, "The Creation" and Mahler's Eighth Symphony under Adam Fischer at the Tonhalle Düsseldorf, as well as Strauss Lieder with the Royal Philhamronic Orchestra, performances with orchestras such as the Boston Symphony Orchestra and the BBC Philharmonic Orchestra under the Management by Andris Nelsons and Omer Meir Wellber. Fatma Said has also given concerts in Vienna, Salzburg and Lucerne, including a gala concert at the United Nations in Geneva.
In 2016, Fatma was honored by Egypt's National Council for Women, and she is also the first opera singer to be awarded the state's Creativity Prize for her outstanding achievements at the international level.

Venue Info

Semperoper Dresden - Dresden
Location   Theaterplatz 2

Not only one of the most beautiful opera houses in the world, the Semperoper is renowned both in Germany and abroad for the brilliant star-studded performances by Saxon State Opera as well as numerous international guest artists.

This is the home of the Staatskapelle Dresden, an orchestra which looks back on 460 years of uninterrupted music-making. The State Opera Chorus was founded by Carl Maria von Weber in 1817. Operatic history has been written here, with the Semperoper playing host to numerous important premieres, such as Richard Wagner’s "Rienzi", "Der fliegende Holländer" and "Tannhäuser". There is also an indissoluble link to Richard Strauss, nine of whose 15 operas were premiered in Dresden, including "Salome", "Der Rosenkavalier" and "Elektra". The small venue Semper Zwei provides space for diverse forms of music theatre as well as theatrical experiments, and is also the venue for performances of Semperoper Junge Szene.

The magnificent Semperoper dominates the Theaterplatz be-side the river Elbe, forming the centrepiece of the historic old city. The original building opened its doors in 1841, constructed to a design by Gottfried Semper which combined a late Classical style with Renaissance elements. Following a devastating fire in 1869, the citizens of Dresden immediately set about rebuilding their beloved opera house. This was completed in 1878, also to a design by Semper. In 1945, during the final months of World War II, the Semperoper was once again razed to the ground.

After a second reconstruction was successfully completed in 1985, the reopening of one of Europe’s most beautiful opera houses was celebrated with a performance of Carl Maria von Weber’s "Freischütz".
The dazzling interiors were painstakingly reconstructed by local craftsmen and artists according to original plans, with state-of-the art stage machinery and technical fittings in the auditorium. A modern annex was added to house the administrative offices and rehearsal rooms. Internationally renowned for its brilliant acoustics and incomparable performances, audiences from around the world continue to flock here to enjoy unforgettable experiences at the Semperoper Dresden.
