Productions performed at “outsourced” locations

  • The Deutsche Oper Berlin is gearing up for the future. To ensure that we continue to offer our patrons opera productions of the very best technical quality, we are renewing the over-stage rigging of the opera house. As we will be unable to use the main stage for the duration of refurbishment, we have sought out alternative venues across the city where we can put on musical-theatre productions. On 23rd August 2014 the Berlin season will open with THE MAGIC FLUTE at the city’s loveliest open-air stage, the Waldbühne. The season’s string of premieres will begin with ORESTEIA, Xenakis’ masterpiece for chamber orchestra, chorus and baritone; the work will be mounted on the upper deck of the Deutsche Oper multi-storey car park, an unusual backdrop for the team centring on director David Hermann. Other premieres will be held in the Philharmonie, which will host Meyerbeer’s DINORAH, the first work in a cycle of Meyerbeer pieces being aired at the Deutsche Oper Berlin over the next few seasons. The Philharmonie will also provide the venue for a production of ARIADNE ON NAXOS with Anja Harteros, to mark Richard Strauss’ sesquicentenary, followed by ROBERTO DEVEREUX in November, with Edita Gruberová in one of her celebrated roles as Elisabetta I. We are likewise delighted to have booked the Béjart Ballet Lausanne for a guest performance in the Tempodrom, which will provide the backdrop for Béjart’s “Ce que l’amour me dit”, “Le Sacre du printemps” and “Bolero”. Finally, from 14th November onwards, we will be presenting Britten’s THE RAPE OF LUCRETIA in the Haus der Berliner Festspiele.

    You are cordially invited to join us in the Waldbühne, the Haus der Berliner Festspiele, the Tempodrom and the Philharmonie and to discover for yourselves venues such as our Tischlerei and the Deutsche Oper multi-storey car park. In the column opposite you will find an overview of our productions performed at “outsourced” locations. From 27th November 2014 the Deutsche Oper Berlin will again have at its disposal one of the most modern stages in Europe. We look forward to seeing you!

    On 27th November 2014 the stage of the Deutsche Oper Berlin in the Bismarckstraße will re-open for performances. In the course of the season four key works in the opera’s repertoire will celebrate their premieres, marking areas of focus that are also a feature of the overall programme. The repertoire of Russian works is being extended with Ole Anders Tandberg’s production of Shostakovich’s LADY MACBETH OF MZENSK; French opera is represented by a Sasha Waltz production of ROMEO AND JULIET and Philipp Stölzl’s staging of Gounod’s FAUST; and in March 2015 we present a Puccini retrospective whose crowning event will doubtless be the premiere of Rolando Villazón’s production of LA RONDINE [THE SWALLOW].

  • Last year I wrote to you in these pages of how dearly I would love to hear the Orchestra of the Deutsche Oper Berlin playing not just Wagner and Verdi but also Brahms and Mahler. This is now a reality and we are delighted with the result – and not simply from an artistic viewpoint. It is particularly pleasing because so many of you have kept the faith with the Orchestra as it ventures into symphonic territory.

    The same goes for the concert we gave at the Musikfest Berlin. It was a very moving experience for me performing Shostakovich’s 15th Symphony with this Orchestra in the Philharmonie, and the fact that we have been invited back this year shows that we can hold our own with the great orchestras of the world. Yet although we relish triumphs like these, the central remit of the Orchestra of the Deutsche Oper Berlin remains the performance of the great works of musical theatre.

    In the Season Preview last year I was waxing lyrical about our new series of chamber concerts held in the Tischlerei. We were all thoroughly gratified to see so many of you attending events, all the more so because the Tischlerei programmes are made up of performances especially close to the hearts of our musicians. I myself was extremely taken with the acoustics of the new performance space and the atmosphere at the concerts. I will definitely be there again this year – either as a musician or as a member of the audience avidly savouring a programme that has been so lovingly and intelligently put together.
    I hope to see you again soon.
    Best regards, Donald Runnicles
