Long night of operetta
Once a month Theater Basel’s charming Director of Studies, Thomas Wise, offers to take the audience on a musical expedition through the works of the operatic repertoire. Here he presents the musical depths and shallows of the operas concerned and points out delicacies that might otherwise escape our attention on the piano. He will share these pearls of wisdom or «Wise-Heiten» together with his own personal assessment of the relevant composers and their works with the audience before the performance begins.
