Mit Befremden schaut Jürgen Flimm auf die Streitigkeiten um den Intendantenwechsel an der Volksbühne. Flimms eigener Nachfolger, Matthias Schulz, hat bereits ein Büro im Schiller-Theater. Die Übergabe der Staatsoper soll harmonisch erfolgen. Derweil kann Jürgen Flimm getrost seine Opern-Inszenierungen am Haus machen. Drei sind es allein in dieser Spielzeit. Mit Salvatore Sciarrinos „Luci Mie Traditrici“ findet am Sonntag die letzte große Berliner Opernpremiere der Saison statt.
