“Delicate and powerful, passionate and poetic.” Leipziger Volkszeitung

Founded in 1817 and with a heritage of the finest singing tradition, the Chor der Oper Leipzig is one of the oldest and most active professional choirs in Germany. Not only have its achievements been recognised with the prestigious Leipzig Art Award (Kunstpreis der Stadt Leipzig), but the choir’s authoritative interpretations have made it a sought-after partner for renowned orchestras, choirs and conductors worldwide. Notable performances include Rossini’s Petite Messe Solennelle under Riccardo Chailly, as well as a recording of Mahler’s “Symphony of a Thousand” under Edo de Waart at the Royal Concertgebouw in Amsterdam.

After their Festival performance in Tannhäuser, around 70 singers from Chor der Oper Leipzig will be showcased in a concert led by acclaimed Austrian chorus master Thomas Eitler-de Lint with accompaniment by pianist Alexander Stessin. Well-known choral numbers include the Sailors’ Chorus from The Flying Dutchman and the “Wedding March” from Lohengrin, both penned by the Leipzig-born composer, Richard Wagner. This evening performance also features much-loved choruses from masterpieces such as Mozart’s The Magic Flute, Verdi’s La Traviata, Gounod’s Faust and Tchaikovsky’s Eugene Onegin. As hunters in Der Freischütz or cigarette girls in Carmen, these singers will conjure memorable scenes from timeless operas. A concert for opera aficionados and novices alike!
