Germany – always worth a visit!

German cities have something to offer for everyone: museums, theatres, history, new and older architecture, shopping, local and inter­national food, etc. The largest cities in include Berlin, Munich, Frankfurt am Main, Hamburg, Hanover, Bremen, Dusseldorf, Stuttgart and Dresden. However, the smaller ones too, like Heidelberg, Mainz, Würzburg, Weimar or Quedlinburg, are certainly worth spending several days. The picture shows a street scene in Rothenburg ob der Tauber.

Richard Wagner - gefeiert und umstritten

The world-renowned opera “The Flying Dutchman” will be staged in Singapore!

“The Flying Dutchman”, the romantic opera by German composer Richard Wagner (1813 – 1883), evolves around the legend of a so-called ghost ship. When Wagner was a young man, almost all trade and travel by sea was done in sailing ships. The sailor’s tales at that time narrated of the often dangerous endeavors and frequently referred to strange creatures emerging from the sea, to islands that, once sighted, could not be found again, and, of course, to ghost ships...  The opera will be staged for the first time ever in Singapore at the Victoria Theatre from 23-30 October 2016!
