Bayerische Staatsoper To Reopen with ‘Wednsday Strolls’

By David Salazar

The Bayerische Staatsoper has announced that it will begin to reopen starting on May 27, 2020 with its “Wednesday Strolls” program.

Per the company’s official website, the events will take place on Wednesdays and feature a maximum of 20 spectators to experience select chamber music as performed by members of the Bavarian State Orchestra.

“With this program we want to take advantage of the current situation and bring our audience to places that would not be accessible, let alone playable, during regular season,” stated director Nikolaus Bachler.

The “Wednesday Strolls” tickets will be available at 10 a.m. on Mondays, two days prior to the concerts. Each concert will last between 30 to 45 minutes with two performances at 6:45 p.m. and 8 p.m.

The Bayerische Staatsoper is the latest company to announce its plans to start a reopening procedure after the COVID-19 crisis. Other organizations that have started reopening plans include the Musikverein Wien, the Rossini Festival, and Oper Frankfurt, among many others.
