12 October 2015 — René Pape returns to the Bayerische Staatsoper this fall in the title role of Boito's Mefistofele, October 24 & 29 and November 1, 6, 10 & 15. Joseph Calleja is Faust and Kristine Opolais sings Margherita, with conductor Omer Meir Wellber and the Bayerisches Staatsorchester and Bayerische Staatsoper Chorus. This new staging is directed by Roland Schwab and designed by Piero Vinciguerra. Opening night will be broadcast live via BR-Klassik, and the November 15 performance will stream live online via Staatsoper.tv.

The first two dates are now sold-out, and there is extremely limited availability for the remaining performances. The cast and creative team will reunite July 21 & 24 for two additional performances.
