Having found inspiration in Slav mythology, Dvorak created Rusalka, one of his most beautiful operas. With the help of his colleague and loyal friend, Jaroslav Kvapil one of the most poetical librettos in opera literature was written. For the audience in Mexico it will be a true fairy tale about water creatures, the magic of dark depths, damnation and a siren who is ready to lay her own life on the altar of love. In his majestic opera Dvorak conjured up a number of melodious and dramatic moments, passionate love songs and vivid orchestration. Luckily, the opera ensemble is led by Srba Dinic, a conductor with Slav blood, so the audience will be able to feel real and sincere emotions of this distant culture and mythology.

Staatsorchester Braunschweig repertoire will feature Mazepa, Tchaikovsky’s famous opera. This time the orchestra will perform the most beautiful parts of Mazepa in the form of a symphonic concert. Although the opera is converted into a symphonic piece, bearing in mind both the GMD’s and Srba Dinic’s opera experience, it will surely keep the beauty of Tchaikovsky’s oeuvre and the story of beautiful and tragic love that only Pushkin can tell.
In the second part of the concert, Shostakovich’s Symphony no. 15 in A-major will be performed. In addition to demonstrating Shostakovich’s creative maturity in the play of contrasts, the symphony also contains Rosini’s and Vagner’s themes which he skillfully used wishing to describe the course of a man’s life with its inevitable ups and downs. Srba Dinic and Staatorchester Braunschweig will perform this program on two consecutive days in Stadthalle.

In Braunschweig theatre opera premiers come thick and fast. As one of the most complex in opera repertoire Strauss’s Elektra has always been a challenge both for an orchestra and singers. Through commonly present atonality and interwoven sections, Strauss depicted family relations burdened with hatred and pain. He masterfully drew the abysses of human soul and desire for revenge from Sophocles’ drama and put them in the foreground. Maida Hundeling’s soprano has already won the reputation of a soloist who can breathe life to dramatic moments on the stage, and with Srba Dinic’s leadership and the support of the whole ensemble this will doubtless be an opera event worthy of our attention.

Within the cycle of symphonic music concerts GMD Srba Dinic and Staatsorchestar Braunschweig are preparing to perform one of Beethoven’s best known piano concert, Concert No 3in C-minor Op 37. Through his interpretation, the German pianist Bernd Glemser will show why this concert is seen as a turning point in Beethoven’s opus and how the composer shifted his focus from virtuosity, in the forefront until then, to his personal feelings and changeability of character.
In the concert’s second part Istanbul Symphony by the Turkish composer Fazil Say will be performed. Even before 2008 when Say was pronounced the Ambassador of Intercultural Dialogue by the EU, he had been in the centre of attention in musical press. Srba Dinic and Staatsorchestar Braunschweig will endeavor to recreate the beauty of the Bosphorous city, through eastern musical ornaments and with the help of old instruments uncharacteristic of a symphonic orchestra.

Staatstheater Braunschweig and Srba Dinić are preparing new a premiere. Following the great success of opera Don Carlo that was endlessly attracting the crowd for five months, it is Mozart’s La clemenza di Titto that shall be added to the repertoire this February. The audience will have the chance to relive the story that was told almost three centuries ago, yet with the same dilemmas that echo through times gone by – whether enlightenment and forgiveness can be enough for struggle with social turbulences, betrayal and fraud. It is interesting to notice that with this piece Mozart returns to opera series at the moment of his most mature composing, which makes this opera truly inspirational, but also the one that is highly complexed and demanding when it comes to performing. The results of this artistic journey and the search for the eternal beauty of Mozart’s music Maestro Dinić and the Opera ensemble will present in the Theatre’s Grand Hall, which has by now surely become a known place of gathering for the most sophisticated music gourmets.
