Jörg Widmanns Oper "Babylon" feiert Premiere an der Berliner Staatsoper. Für die Zuschauer verläuft der Abend eher eintönig.

Berlin. Ja, es gibt sie noch. Die zeitgenössische Vollblutoper, die Herzblut verströmt und sich die Seele aus dem Leib schreit. Jörg Widmanns Oper „Babylon“ ist so ein Werk, das einen packt und schüttelt. Trotzdem ist man am Ende der Premiere in der Staatsoper nur halbglücklich.
