Tickets: 36.00-7.00 €


Franz Liszt: Orpheus / Bernhard Gander: Dirty Angel / Gottfried von Einem: Wandlungen / Béla Bartók: The Miraculous Mandarin


“The Miraculous Mandarin” is a one act pantomime ballet that caused a scandal by depicting a brothel in a concrete hell where the value of human life is counted in pocket money. The plans of three seasoned criminals are turned on their head when a wealthy Chinese man – a Mandarin – with mystical powers appears at the door. The music climaxes with the unforgettable Dirty Angel for solo flugelhorn, solo accordion and orchestra by Bernhard Gander.
