The Sandman / Düsseldorf

He is a wicked man, who comes to children when they won’t go to bed, and throws a handful of sand into their eyes, so that they start out bleeding from their heads. He puts their eyes in a bag and carries them to the crescent moon to feed his own children, who sit in the nest up there. They have crooked beaks like owls so that they can pick up the eyes of naughty human children.
— E.T.A. Hoffmann, "The Sandman" (English translation by John Oxenford)

Robert Wilson directs The Sandman, a ghost story from German Romanticism, with music by British dramatic rock singer songwriter Anna Calvi.  Previous productions of 'dark fairy tales' by Robert Wilson include The Black Rider (Hamburg 1990) and Peter Pan (Berlin 2013).

Pushkin's Fairy Tales / Moscow

Pushkin wrote the Fairy Tales at his country home Boldino between 1830 and 1834. The tales' sources vary from Russian folklore themes to Western tales. Written in verse, a humourous narrator alternates with dialogue of the characters. Rich symbolism and enigmatic structures ('Tale of the Golden Cockerel,' 'Tale of the Priest and his workman Balda') and powerful imagery ('Tale of the Fisherman,' 'Tale of Tsar Saltan') are central characteristics of these late works by the great Russian poet. Robert Wilson’s production of Pushkin's Fairy Tales unites four of the five tales in addition to the rather unknown fragment of the 'Tale of the She-Bear.'

Mary Said What She Said (Opening) / Paris

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.

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.

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.

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.

Madama Butterfly / Paris

The revival of Robert Wilson's signature production of Madama Butterfly, which originated at the National Opera Paris in 1993, features exquisite costumes by Frida Parmeggiani and choreography by the late Japanese artist and long-time collaborator of Wilson, Suzushi Hanayagi. Robert Wilson aimed at directing a refined version, outside of the all the "fake Japanese, cherry blossom and all of the traditional clichés on Japanese culture". The aesthetics of this production and the acting are largely inspired by Butoh, a Japanese form of dance characterized by slow motion, poetry and minimalism.

The production has been shown at The Netherlands Opera Amsterdam, The Bolshoi Theater Moscow, Los Angeles Opera and others, and remains in the Paris Opera's repertoire.

Endgame / Berlin

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.
— Der Tagesspiegel (Rüdiger Schaper), Dec. 4, 2016

Pushkin's Fairy Tales / Moscow

Pushkin wrote the Fairy Tales at his country home Boldino between 1830 and 1834. The tales' sources vary from Russian folklore themes to Western tales. Written in verse, a humourous narrator alternates with dialogue of the characters. Rich symbolism and enigmatic structures ('Tale of the Golden Cockerel,' 'Tale of the Priest and his workman Balda') and powerful imagery ('Tale of the Fisherman,' 'Tale of Tsar Saltan') are central characteristics of these late works by the great Russian poet. Robert Wilson’s production of Pushkin's Fairy Tales unites four of the five tales in addition to the rather unknown fragment of the 'Tale of the She-Bear.'

Pushkin wrote the Fairy Tales at his country home Boldino between 1830 and 1834. The tales' sources vary from Russian folklore themes to Western tales. Written in verse, a humourous narrator alternates with dialogue of the characters. Rich symbolism and enigmatic structures ('Tale of the Golden Cockerel,' 'Tale of the Priest and his workman Balda') and powerful imagery ('Tale of the Fisherman,' 'Tale of Tsar Saltan') are central characteristics of these late works by the great Russian poet. Robert Wilson’s production of Pushkin's Fairy Tales unites four of the five tales in addition to the rather unknown fragment of the 'Tale of the She-Bear.'

The Troubadour / Bologna

Verdi’s operas are very precise. There is not a single superfluous word or note. They are highly concentrated. To preserve the strength of THE TROUBADOUR, you must be careful not to tell a million things at once. One must keep the surface simple. The opera is very passionate. The music goes through extremes: from very quiet to very loud, from expressions of love to expressions of hate. It takes an extraordinary depth of emotion to perform this work. It has to come from the singers’ center. Often, Verdi is portrayed outwardly by conductors, orchestra, and singers. It becomes sentimental. That is false. It has to be felt inwardly. Without it, Verdi’s music loses its power.
— Robert Wilson (from: Director's Note, Program Book Parma)

The Sandman / Düsseldorf

He is a wicked man, who comes to children when they won’t go to bed, and throws a handful of sand into their eyes, so that they start out bleeding from their heads. He puts their eyes in a bag and carries them to the crescent moon to feed his own children, who sit in the nest up there. They have crooked beaks like owls so that they can pick up the eyes of naughty human children.
— E.T.A. Hoffmann, "The Sandman" (English translation by John Oxenford)

Robert Wilson directs The Sandman, a ghost story from German Romanticism, with music by British dramatic rock singer songwriter Anna Calvi.  Previous productions of 'dark fairy tales' by Robert Wilson include The Black Rider (Hamburg 1990) and Peter Pan (Berlin 2013).

Oedipus / Naples

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.

Krapp's Last Tape / Berlin

Robert Wilson not only directs and designs, but also performs Samuel Beckett’s one-man play Krapp’s Last Tape, his first appearance as an actor since his HAMLET: A MONOLOGUE, last performed in 2000. The work provides a unique opportunity for his performing talent, being a blend of his signature, highly detailed, and rigorous integration of movement, lighting and sound, and within that framework, a structure that leaves a great deal of freedom for the spontaneity of response that makes his live performance so exciting.Wilson has often been compared with Beckett, both being masters of the stark simplicity that is one of the most difficult artistic achievements. Nothing is extraneous, not a word, not a movement. In the brief hour of this work, Beckett and Wilson in a few simple strokes paint a vision of the world that is very particular and at the same time, universal.
