Just in: Berlin hires Frank Gehry, 86main
The architect of Los Angeles’s stunning Walt Disney Hall and Bilbao’s Guggenheim Museum has been booked to design a production for Berlin State Opera. It’s Glück’s Orpheus and Euridice, director Jürgen Flimm, conducted by Daniel Barenboim in March 2016.
Gehry has only designed one opera before – Mozart’s Don Giovanni in LA, 2012.
He is presently working on a concert hall for Barenboim’s West-Eastern Divan Orchestra in Berlin.
