World Premiere of the Year: ”The Idiot” by Mieczyslaw Weinberg

The world premiere (9 May 2013) of Mieczyslaw Weinberg’s opera “The Idiot” in the production by Regula Gerber was selected “World Premiere of the Year”, alongside George Benjamin’s “Written on Skin”, by 50 independent music critics in Europe and the USA during the course of a survey conducted by the journal “Opernwelt”.

Thanks to the world premiere of the original version of “The Idiot” and Achim Freyer’s “Ring” Cycle, the Mannheim National Theatre was awarded second place - just behind the Berlin Comic Opera - in the selection of the Opera House of the Year.
