Wim Wenders, 71, makes a successful opera debut

The celebrated film director was cheered to the rafters last night in Berlin, at the end of Bizet’s Pearl Fishers. Wenders has been pursued for years by Bayreuth to stage an opera, on one occasion pulling out at the last moment.

It took Daniel Barenboim to entice him onto the opera stage, to great acclaim.

  • “No reviews in yet.”

    Maybe there aren’t any English language reviews yet but there have been German reviews for one or two days now.
    For example, Maria Ossowski of rbb finds that “Wim Wenders turned the Pearl Fishers into a jewel” and Volkmar Fischer of BR-Klassik thought it to be “irritatingly dilettantish”.
