Damien Gastl


Grandfather clock and cat in Alsace

Damien Gastl’s second season with the opera-studio of the Opéra national du Rhin in Strasbourg is in full swing and the opera-production of the Christmas-season already casts its shadows before. However, which kind of magic will turn Damien into both a grandfather clock and a cat? Maurice Ravel and Colette are certainly having a finger in the pie!

Ravel’s and Colette’s L’enfant et les sortilèges, a new-production of the opera-studio of the Opéra national du Rhin, is opening at the Comédie de Colmar on December 15th. Further performances will follow in 2022 at the Théâtre de Hautepierre in Strasbourg and at the Filature in Mulhouse.

Hansel and Gretel at the Opéra national du Rhin

After having created a first-class Don Giovanni in a corona-appropriate version with the prestigious Graz Styriarte Festival this summer, Damien Gastl joined the outstanding Opéra national du Rhin opera-studio in Strasbourg, his native city. He meanwhile made his debut there in Samson et Dalila and will soon perform the role of the father in Hänsel und Gretel. Opening-night will be on December 12, 2020.


Don Giovanni with the Styriarte Festival

He was supposed to make his role-debut as Don Giovanni within a staged production of the renowned Styriarte Festival this summer. The staged version can after all unfortunately not take place; Damien Gastl, nevertheless, finally appears there as Don Giovanni, now joining the concert-series under the title Don Giovanni in distress (Don Giovanni in Nöten).
