To kick off the new JA. MAI Festival at the Bavarian State Opera, which presents works by Georg Friedrich Haas in its first edition, Titus Engel conducts the opera Bluthaus from May 21.

Premiered in 2011 and revised in 2014, the opera based on a libretto by Händl Klaus will be shown in five performances until May 29. In combination with Claudio Monteverdi's madrigals about love, Klaus Guth's production tells the story of Nadja, who, in selling her childhood home, also tries to cast off her past.
