Double-bill: Boring, depressing opera (Jakobsleiter) before a Comic Opera (Gianni Schicchi)

New in the Staatsoper, now they have VILAR subtitling system, unfortunately it is still better to be prepared and not use the subtitles.  Opera is more enjoyable that way.

But Schönbergs Jakobsleiter is not possible to enjoy. We all needed the fun from the Comic opera by Puccini in order to go happily home. The staircase on the stage for Jakobsleiter was used in Gianni Schicchi. It was really a comic relief. Wonderful production.
