The Allee Theater is the only private chamber opera in Europe and is dedicated primarily to music theatre of the 16th to 19th centuries.
The programme includes works from all eras, with a focus on the 17th, 18th and 19th centuries. Current productions of well-known operas such as "Carmen" by Georges Bizet or "Die Italienerin in Algier" by Gioachino Rossini form the classical foundation of the repertoire. But the house is also characterised by world premieres. Especially the musical excavations regularly cause a stir, most recently "Der Vampyr" by Heinrich Marschner and "Lauter Verrückte! (Che Originali)" by Johann Simon Mayr.
The works are performed in versions that take into account the conditions of a chamber opera. The necessary compression of the works is therefore intended. However, great importance is attached to ensuring that the character of an opera is always preserved. In Barbara Hass's text versions recitative dialogues are replaced; the plot gains immediacy, the emotions are tangible through the musical arrangements.
All versions of the Hamburg Chamber Opera will be represented by the stage and music publisher Ricordi.
The Hamburg Chamber Opera wants to offer opera connoisseurs sophisticated entertainment and, at the same time, to invite opera newcomers to discover the genre of opera.
The Opera Menu
Following the example of the Baroque, an evening at the Hamburg Chamber Opera can be an all-round pleasure, an experience not only for the eyes and ears, but also for the palate. After all, food, drink and conversation are just as much a part of culture as music and theatre.
The opera menus are "composed" by the restaurant RONDO especially for the respective operas.
