In September 2016 opera Tosca had a grand premiere. Staged under modern direction by Roland Schwab it was a noteworthy performance in the last year. In this season Tosca will be on the repertoire again, but with the new ensemble. Guided by Srba Dinic’s artistic ideas, it will present a rich orchestration and melody lines which vividly underline the development of story, characters and emotions. This work which marked the turn of centuries, belongs to the most frequently and universally performed opera. The second season of its performance in Braunschweig is yet another proof of Puccini’s musical mastery and a challenge for Mr Dinic and the opera ensemble to justify their high quality with each new performance.

Soloists, choir and orchestra of Braunschweig Theatre will gather once again, this time to perform Mahler’s Symphony No. 2 – “Resurrection”. In contrastto very successful production of opera Don Carlos that is at the moment played with great success, the audience will now have the opportunity to see the ensemble from totally different perspective. In first three movements of “Resurrection”the orchestra will try to unveil its mystic and transparent colors, while in fourth and fifth movement, supported by soloists Jelena Banković and Jelena Kordić with the choir, a lot of emotional tension is needed from the musicians to illustrate death and resurrection itself. This is one of many Mahler’s symphonies at repertoire of Srba Dinić. It is known as the most popular Mahler’s piece and enriched with Dinić’s deep understanding of Mahler’s work and experience insetting the music on stage, there is no doubt that the audience will feel empoweredto experience composer’s intention to celebrate the beauty and hope in life after death.

Srba Dinic will perform Don Carlo as the season’s first premiere. Verdi wrote the famous opera based on a play by equally famous German romantic poet Friedrich Schiller. The opera ensemble, enriched with new members, has been long preparing this historical story presented in five acts. With many singers, two choirs on the stage and a large orchestra, Srba Dinic will yet again justify numerous positive reviews in which he is described as an exquisite connoisseur of Verdi’s operas. The audience will hear the story of conflicting powers of love and power, state and religion, politics and privacy, and more than anything yearning for freedom in both external and internal world.

After the season which saw a number of successful opera and ballet premiers, the Bellas Artes will perform Missasolemnis in D major, Op. 123, a piece which has a special place in Beethoven’s opus. This is the second mass by Beethoven (the first one in C major, Op. 86) and although it is dedicated to the Archbishop of Austria Rudolf Reiner, it is believed to be the expression of Beethoven’s deepest spiritual feelings. SrbaDinic with the Bellas Artes choir and orchestra will present to the audience this highly complex piece in all its beauty in view of religious value, personal Beethoven’s feelings and high level of score interpretation. He wrote it for six years and being a serious challenge for the performers it can but rarely be seen on concert repertoires, and even rarer in churches.
Inspired by the dedication of the piece “May that what comes from a heart reach hearts” (“VomHerzen, mögeeswieder, zuHerzengehen!”) SrbaDinic and Bellas Artes ensemble will convey this message in the language of Beethoven’ssublime interpretative style.

The story about Manon by Antoine Francois Prevost from 1731 was inspirational to many artists. In 1884 Jules Massenet composed an opera Manon, to be outshone by Giacomo Puccini with his opera which he named Manon Lescaut in 1893. A century later Manon came to life again this time as ballet. Artistic director of Royal Ballet, Kenneth MacMillan staged choreography on the the music by Jules Massenet which lived to a great success. This year it is on the repertoire of Teatro de Bellas Artes.
Under the leadership of Srba Dinic, ballet ensemble Compañía Nacionalde Danza and Orquesta del Teatro de Bellas Artes will attune their movements and phrases to show the audience that literature, ballet and music can become one. Manon is the last ballet in this season so the whole ensemble is particularly inspired to perform the story which has lived through centuries in different artistic forms.

He is already on familiar terms with the orchestra and the ensemble with two symphonic concerts and Andrea Chenier Opera under their belts. After months of negotiations involving 15 candidates, Dinic stood out as a leader whose experience and knowledge made him the most trustworthy with the ensemble. Some lavish opera productions are planned for the next seasons, including Don Carlos, Tosca, Elektra and symphonic music with select soloists. The first encounter with the audience, Gala Concert, is to be on the 5th June in Braunscheweig city park. Dinic will remain in the position of Generalmusikdirektor for the next five years. Plans are grand and ambitious, and everybody agrees on one point: the maestro will live up to the expectations of his faithful listeners and provide opportunities for budding artists and young audience to come closer in this most beautiful art.
