"Marc Niemann intelligently decoded the complex scores, but also kept an eye on the poetic mood."

Michael Pitz-Grevenig about sacre du printemps and Petrouchka in "Das Orchester" 6/2022

"Marc Niemann and the orchestra have played a decisive role in the success of the production. The interpretation is differentiated and sensitive, with a warm French sound"

Michael Stange on IOCO about the premiere of "Les contes d'Hoffmann"


symphonic concerts Orchestra di Padova e del Veneto

The Orchestra di Padova e del Veneto is one of the most distinguished orchestras in northern Italy. In the symphony concert under the direction of Marc Niemann on 8 May in Rovigo and 9 May in Padua, the orchestra will present a program that brings together very different works such as Béla Bartók's Divertimento for String Orchestra or Joseph Haydn's Symphony No. 103 ("Drum-Roll") in order to make unexpected interactions between the works audible and tangible. The world-renowned pianist Jan Lisiecki will perform Beethoven's Piano Concerto No. 4, providing a further counterpoint to this creative program.

Rosenkavalier Premiere at Bremerhaven theatre

On 4 May 2024, the comedy for music "Der Rosenkavalier" by Richard Strauss based on a libretto by Hugo von Hofmannsthal will premiere at the Stadttheater Bremerhaven. Marc Niemann will be the musical director and Julius Theodor Semmelmann will direct.
Strauss and Hofmannsthal created this work in 1911, which contains so many allusions to already existing stage works, most obviously the proximity to Mozart's opera buffa "le nozze di Figaro", that it could almost be considered a historical outline of theatre history. However, it is often overlooked that neither the supposedly historically authentic language nor the frequently quoted waltz existed during Maria Theresa's reign. While this has given rise to criticism that "Der Rosenkavalier" is too close to operetta, scenes such as the presentation of the silver rose, the Marschallin's time monologue and the famous final sonnet are among the most impressive operatic scenes in literature.
