Felsenstein's Legendary Opera Films

Walter Felsenstein was one of the most accomplished and creative theater directors of the 20th century. As the founder and artistic director of the Komische Oper Berlin, he rewrote the rulebook for director’s theater – and set new standards for sophisticated stagings, which up until then had focused almost exclusively on acting. The medium of film played an especially important role for him. You can now experience a selection of stagings and film versions which have since become classics of musical theater, available in digitally restored versions here on takt1.
