The 2014/15 season at Bayerische Staatsoper

At the annual press conference, General Manager Nikolaus Bachler and General Music Director Kirill Petrenko presented the coming season's musical programme. The season stands under the title of Glances Kisses Bites. "Inspired by Heinrich von Kleist, these three words very succinctly define the emotional world of opera. The dichotomy between love and hate that again and again constitutes the motif driving the pilot of operas will be the basic element of next season's premieres as well", according to Nikolaus Bachler.
