Dominik Köninger in innovative Magic Flute in Berlin

We've become such huge fans of Dominik Köninger since he won the 2011 Wigmore Hall Song Competition. We we thrilled to see that he's Papageno in the new highly innovative production of Die Zauberflöte at the Komische Oper in Berlin.

The innovative Barrie Kosky production is in collaboration with the amazing British theater group “1927," whose humorous shows have thrilled audiences all over the world with their interaction between film animation and live-performing actors. The production is a mix of silent movies, Weimar era cabaret, David Lynch and Grimm's Fairy Tales.

Performances will run into February and tickets and additional performance information is available online.

  1. Saw DK in the Orpheus at the KO last october. Amazing performance, he can sing (und wie!), he can dance (und wie!), he can sing the whole bleedin' exit-from-the-underworld aria while schleppin' Euridice on his shoulders, and he can strip down to his trousers, showering the first row with beads of barihunk sweat (und WOW!)

    This boy will go far... Now let's talk about Günther Papendell!

  2. Just saw this production in Berlin last week. It was so fun and charming. If you happen to be there while it is playing, I highly recommend it!
