Norma / Zurich

Robert Wilson directed Norma, one of the gems of the Belcanto genre, for the first time in Zurich in 2011. This revival will be conducted by Fabio Luisi, the Music Director of the Zurich Opera. 

Bellini’s masterpiece is an ideal object for Wilson’s staged visions. His set creates spaces for the music, in a way that congenially corresponds to the music’s sublime and elegaic atmosphere as well as its dramatic accentuations.

Oedipus / Epidaurus

Based on Oedipus Tyrannus (Οἰδίπους Τύραννος) by Sophocles, Robert Wilson first directed Oedipus in the 2018 season at the Grand Theater in the ruins of Pompeii. Then it was shown at the historic Teatro Olimpico, constructed by architect Andrea Palladio, in Vicenza.

The show is ritual, slow and elegant. Lights are beautiful and the majestic scene is lighted such as it appears at the same time light, grand and magical. The movements of the actors on the stage are geometrical. For Wilson, Oedipus is the tragedy of the light which blinds to show. An Oedipus without tragedy: a suggestive dreamlike vision. Wilson has accustomed us to his perfection.

Mary Said What She Said / Lyon

Mary Said What She Said is the testimony of Mary Queen of Scots drawn from her letters about her involvement in some of the most notorious plots of her time. She is lying, but on the eve of death has fear persuaded her that she is telling the truth? Queen Mary is in fact telling the truth about her last love. The title refers to the damning testimony against her by one of her ladies—her four closest attendants were each called Mary.

Robert Wilson directs this monologue by Darryl Pinckney with Isabelle Huppert in a production by the Théâtre de la Ville, Paris.

The Messiah / Salzburg (Opening)

Oratorio in three parts for soloists, choir and orchestra by Georg Friedrich Händel edited by Mozart

Mozart’s German-language version of Handel’s Messiah is famous, though seldom heard. Written in 1789, at the request of baroque enthusiast Gottfried van Swieten, this profound arrangement of Handel’s best-known oratorio includes copious woodwind parts. Marc Minkowski and Les Musiciens du Louvre are not only acclaimed exponents of Handel and Mozart; they also belong to the Mozart Week musical family.

To mark their return to the festival, their brilliant performance is combined for the first time with the art of Robert Wilson: a fascinating fusion of periods and styles on several levels.

Norma / Zurich

Robert Wilson directed Norma, one of the gems of the Belcanto genre, for the first time in Zurich in 2011. This revival will be conducted by Fabio Luisi, the Music Director of the Zurich Opera. 

Bellini’s masterpiece is an ideal object for Wilson’s staged visions. His set creates spaces for the music, in a way that congenially corresponds to the music’s sublime and elegaic atmosphere as well as its dramatic accentuations.

Endgame / Winterthur

Like most of Samuel Beckett’s texts, Endgame deals with characters outside of society, waiting and looking in vain for something unknown in a nondescript, apocalyptical place. Its characters are bound towards each other by an invisible chain of co-dependency that knows no way out. Contrary to this bleak topic, it is a strikingly funny play with a number of comic elements, physical and verbal. Endgame was Robert Wilson's 10th production at the Berliner Ensemble since 1998.

This poignancy and consequence. This concentration. This severity. This humor. ... No sentimentality, but the echo of a world in turmoil.
