Deutsche Oper Berlin

The Treasure Hunter


Bismarckstraße 35, 10627 Berlin


At the Deutsche Oper Berlin Christof Loy already has a reputation as a comeback agent for little-known early-20th-century operas, having staged successful productions of Erich Wolfgang Korngold’s THE MIRACLE OF HELIANE and Riccardo Zandonai’s FRANCESCA DA RIMINI. He now tackles another long-forgotten work: Franz Schreker’s THE TREASURE HUNTER, one of the most important operas of the 20th century. The work was a triumph at its world premiere in Frankfurt in 1920 and went on to play 44 times at assorted venues over the next five years. It then fell victim to a shifting zeitgeist and slipped from opera-house programmes, with a National Socialist ban on performances sealing its demise. Even after 1945 the Schreker revival was a long time coming – and THE TREASURE HUNTER has not featured prominently in the renaissance.
