Karlsruhe operahus

Karlsruhe hade två operabyggnader innan den nuvarande Staatstheater uppfördes. Den första Weinbrenner Theater från 1808, lades i aska vid en eldsvåda under en föreställning 1847. Den klassicistiska hovteatern från 1853 ansågs vara Tysklands vackraste teaterbyggnad och bildade ramen kring en serie musikhistorisska evenemang. öppningsåret dirigerade Liszt Beethovens nionde symfoni, 1863 dirigerade Wagner utdrag ur egna verk och 1876 fraamfördes Brahms första symfoni för första gången här.

Som generalmusikdirektor tjänstgjorde först Hermann Levi (1864-72), som senarare ledde uruppförandet av Parsifal i Bayreuth, och längre fram en annan Wagnerspecialist, Felix Mottl, under vars period (1880-1904) Karlsruhe fick tillnamnet “Lilla Bayreuth”. På 1920-talet dirigerade både Richard Strauss och Hans Pfitzner egna verk i Badisches Landestheater, som huset kom att heta 1918. Byggnaden förstördes totalt under ett flyganfall 1944 och efter kriget spelade man i det gamla konserthuset, som fick byggas om flera gånger.

Först 1975 kunde den nya Staatstheater Karlruhe öppnas. Den har två salonger, den stora med 1002 platser, som används för operor, och den lilla med plats för 350-550 personer.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Badisches Staatstheater Karlsruhe is a theatre and opera house in Karlsruhe, Germany. It has existed in its present form and place at Ettlinger Tor since 1975. Achim Thorwald became the “Intendant” (Artistic director) in the summer of 2002, retiring at the end of the 2010/11 season, and being replaced by Peter Spuhler from the 2011/12 season onwards.

The Staatstheater is a Dreisparten house, comprising the three performance genres of music theatre, ballet and theatre, as well as the studio stage in Karlstraße. TheBadische Staatskapelle (orchestra) and the Badische Staatsopernchor (opera chorus) are attached to the theatre.

History

The first predecessor of the Badischen Staatstheater was built in 1808 by the then city architect Friedrich Weinbrenner, near the castle. In 1810 it became theGroßherzoglichen Hoftheater (court theatre).

A fire broke out during a performance on February 28, 1847, in which the building, which had been built mostly from wood and canvas, was completely destroyed. A total of 63 spectators perished, most in a panic caused by doors opening inwards and preventing a speedy escape. Building regulations worldwide have since been adapted to prevent such occurrences. The replacement theatre, built by court architect Heinrich Hübsch, was finished in 1853, and opened under the direction of Eduard Devrient.

During an aerial bombardment in 1944, the Hoftheater was destroyed again. The site is now occupied by the German Federal Constitutional Court. It took until 1964 for plans to be drawn up for the current building, which was completed in 1975.

Since 1977, the works of baroque composer Georg Friedrich Händel have been presented in a special format each year: between 1978 and 1984, “Händel days” took place. In 1985 these became the Händel Festival, which occurs yearly in February, on the birthday of the composer, February 23; the 30th anniversary was celebrated in 2007.
