This season Sebastian Weigle conducts a new production Hänsel und Gretel, a revival of our wonderful production of Die Frau ohne Schatten, a work he conducted at the 2014 Munich Opera Festival, a new production of Der Rosenkavalier and the first ever performances in Frankfurt of Bohuslav Martinů's Julietta. During 2014/15 he will also conduct a new production of Der Freischütz and performances of Die Zauberflöte at the Staatsoper in Berlin, where he was born. He made his debut at Oper Frankfurt in the 2002/03 season with performances of Salome, returning for the, then, new production of Die Frau ohne Schatten, for which he was voted »Conductor of the Year« by Opernwelt magazine in 2003. He was GMD of the Gran Teatre del Liceu in Barcelona from 2004-2009 before taking up the same post at Oper Frankfurt in 2008/09. Last season he conducted new productions of Rusalka, Ariadne auf Naxos, Don Giovanni and concert performances of Strauss' Die Liebe der Danae for the company, all works he had never conducted before. Other operas in recent seasons have included Königskinder, Der Spieler/The Gambler, La fanciulla del West, Otello and our wonderful new Ring (available on CD and DVD/OehmsClassics); he has also concluded a series of concert performances of early Wagner operas with Rienzi, which have all been released on CD by OehmsClassics. This former Staatskapellmeister at the Staatsoper in Berlin has also enjoyed great success at the Semperoper in Dresden, the Hamburg State Opera (Salome 2014), the Vienna State Opera and the opera houses in Cincinnati and Sydney and the Metropolitan Opera New York. Five years running, ending in 2011, he conducted Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg in Bayreuth. He has also conducted this opera at the 2013 Spring Festival in Tokyo and at Zurich Opera.
