That's what your teeth could look like if you smoke cigars for 60 years, kids.
Generalmusikdirektor Daniel Barenboim and Intendant Jürgen Flimm today announced the 2012-13 programme for the Staatsoper Unter den Linden - or rather the Staatsoper im Schiller Theater, as it remains while the builders dally with refurbishments.
On top of the Ring cycles already announced, there are a few interesting premieres.
Calixto Bieito directs Toshio Hosokawa's new one-act opera Hanjo. Claus Guth tackles Purcell's Fairy Queen, with Michael Boder conducting. A new libretto will be created for Hans Neunfels' La finta giardiniera, which Christopher Moulds will conduct. Philipp Stölzl's 2009 Theater Basel production of Der fliegende Holländer will be shown in Berlin for the first time, with Daniel Harding conducting. An extensive chamber opera selection with tickets at just €15 includes Der Kaiser von Atlantis and several contemporary works.
Anyone after star names should check out the concert programme instead of the operas. Thanks to Barenboim's glitzy address book, guests include Jonas Kaufmann, Placido Domingo, Anja Harteros and Rolando Villazon.
