  • The discography of Deutsche Oper Berlin includes over 190 CDs and DVDs and takes you on a journey through time encompassing over 90 years of the history of the opera house on Berlin’s Bismarckstrasse. You will find live recordings as well as studio recordings. Many of the live recordings were originally produced by radio or (in later times) TV stations, the studio recordings were produced in sound- and film studios in Berlin. Eduard Möricke, Ignatz Waghalter and the composer and conductor Hans Pfitzner marks the starting point of the recording series. Since then, the composer Pfitzner has been followed by conductors such as Ferenc Fricsay, Karl Böhm, Eugen Jochum, Heinrich Hollreiser, Lorin Maazel, Kent Nagano, Christian Thielemann and Donald Runnicles. It is impossible to mention all the soloists who appear on the recordings. To name a few: Among the female singers are Erna Berger, Elisabeth Schwarzkopf, Kirsten Flagstad, Birgit Nilsson, Elisabeth Grümmer, Pilar Lorengar, Christa Ludwig, Gwyneth Jones, Lucia Aliberti, Anna Netrebko and Angela Gheorghiu, male singers include Josef Greindl, Hans Hotter, Hermann Prey, Piero Cappuccilli, Renato Bruson, Fritz Wunderlich, James King, René Kollo, Peter Seiffert, Neil Shicoff, Placido Domingo, Rolando Villazon and Roberto Alagna.

  • The baritone Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau plays a special role in the discography of the Deutsche Oper as he appears more often than any other artist. His first appearance as Rodrigo in the live recording of Giuseppe Verdi’s DON CARLOS from November 28 1948, was produced when he was only 23 years old and had just joined the ensemble of the Städtische Oper under the direction of Ferenc Fricsay which initiated the beginning of his international career. The DVDs include opera productions directed by Gustav Rudolf Sellner, Günther Rennert, Luca Ronconi, John Dew, Götz Friedrich, Kirsten Harms and Philipp Stölzl. The list of contributing artists furthermore features the pianist Wilhelm Kempff and the presenters Vicco von Bülow (Loriot) and Max Raabe.

    The recordings have been divided into various categories such as complete opera recordings, excerpts (highlights, singer portraits etc.) or concerts and chamber music.

    The selection is complemented by CDs and DVDs that Donald Runnicles, the General Music Director of the Deutsche Oper Berlin, recorded with international artists and ensembles such as Kiri Te Kanawa, Eva Marton, Hildegard Behrens, Angela Denoke, Bo Skovhus, Neil Shicoff and Ben Heppner. Please note that new releases and future projects of Deutsche Oper Berlin as well as those of our media partners shall continue to be announced separately.

    All CDs and DVDs featured in the list are available via online stores, specialist music stores or in the »Musik & Literatur« shop at Deutsche Oper Berlin. Due to the fast-paced developments in the music sector we kindly ask for your understanding should any of the recordings be temporarily out of stock.

  • Leos Janácek: JENUFA

    Die Produktionsgesellschaft Unitel hat die Aufführungen von Leos Janáceks JENUFA am 15. und 18. Februar 2014 in der Regie von Christof Loy und unter der musikalischen Leitung von Donald Runnicles aufgezeichnet. Es sang die Premieren-Besetzung mit Michaela Kaune, Jennifer Larmore, Will Hartmann und Hanna Schwarz. Ladislav Elgr, der erstmals an der Deutschen Oper Berlin in der Partie des Steva zu erleben war, vervollständigte das Ensemble. Für die Bildregie der Aufzeichnung konnte Brian Large gewonnen werden. Der Regisseur, der wie kein anderer den Stil und die Ästhetik der Opern- und Konzertaufzeichnungen der letzten Jahrzehnte geprägt hat, kehrte damit an das Haus zurück, an dem er bereits DIE TOTE STADT, ORPHEUS IN DER UNTERWELT, OEDIPUS, MACBETH, SALOME, DIE HUGENOTTEN und DIE MEISEISTERSINGER VON NÜRNBERG aufgenommen hatte. Alle diese Aufnahmen liegen bereits auf DVD vor. Über den Zeitpunkt der Veröffentlichung der JENUFA auf DVD und Blu ray Disc sowie über den Sendetermin der Aufzeichnung im Fernsehen werden wir noch gesondert informieren.

    Carl Orff: GISEI – DAS OPFER / Felix von Weingartner: DIE DORFSCHULE

    Carl Orffs (1895-1982) im Jahr 1913 komponierte erste Oper GISEI – DAS OPFER und Felix von Weingartners DIE DORFSCHULE, uraufgeführt 1920 an der Wiener Staatsoper, entstanden beide zu derselben literarischen Vorlage, dem altjapanischen Drama TERAKOYA. Die Gegensätzlichkeit der schöpferischen Grundhaltung der beiden Komponisten bei der Vertonung dieses Stoffes – einerseits das experimentell Tastende des achtzehnjährigen, noch ganz an den Anfängen seiner Komponistenkarriere stehenden Carl Orff, andererseits die spätromantische Meisterschaft des damals weltberühmten komponierenden Dirigenten Felix von Weingartner – machte den großen Reiz des konzertanten Doppelabends aus, mit dem die Deutsche Oper Berlin ihrem Publikum beide Werke am 19. Mai 2012 präsentierte. Jaques Lacombe dirigierte die Vorstellung, die vom Deutschlandradio übertragen wurde. Zu den Solisten zählten Elena Zhidkova, Fionnuala McCarthy, Ulrike Helzel, Clemens Bieber, Stephen Bronk, Markus Brück und Burkhard Ulrich. „Viele Ausgrabungen sind schon nach der Premiere wieder vergessen, hier ist es anders: Gerne mehr davon“ schrieb der Tagesspiegel in seiner Kritik zur Aufführung. „Mehr davon“ wird es geben, wenn das Label cpo die Aufzeichnung dieses Doppelabends auf zwei CDs herausgeben wird. Über die genauen Erscheinungstermine werden wir Sie noch gesondert informieren.

  • DIE HUGENOTTEN in HD

    Fernsehen im HD-Format gilt gemeinhin als eine technische Entwicklung der letzten Jahre. Umso überraschender ist daher das, was die Produktionsgesellschaft EuroArts bereits 1991 verkünden konnte: „Die erste Fernsehaufzeichnung in der bundesdeutschen Fernsehgeschichte in HDTV mit europäischer Norm“. Der Ort dieser technischen Neuerung war die Deutsche Oper Berlin, ihr Gegenstand Giacomo Meyerbeers DIE HUGENOTTEN in der Inszenierung von John Dew. Die Pioniertat, von der Produktionsgesellschaft als „Option für die Zukunft“ bezeichnet, geriet allerdings alsbald in Vergessenheit. Die Ausstrahlungen im Fernsehen erfolgten mangels geeigneter Sende- und Empfangstechnik im klassischen Sendeformat, für den Home-Video-Bereich kam die Aufzeichnung zuerst auf Video-Kassette und seitdem auf DVD heraus. Ende des vergangenen Jahres hat sich das Label Arthaus Musik jedoch im Zuge der gerade herausgekommenen DVD-Neuauflage der HUGENOTTEN auch des frühen HD-Formats angenommen. Nach erfolgreicher Restaurierung sind DIE HUGENOTTEN deshalb ab März 2013, mehr als 20 Jahre nach ihrer Aufzeichnung, nun auch auf Blu ray Disc – und damit erstmals in ihrer ursprünglichen optischen Qualität – erhältlich.

    DVD-Kooperation mit Arthaus Musik

    Aus Anlass des 100jährigen Jubiläums der Gründung des Opernhauses an der Bismarckstraße veröffentlicht der Kooperationspartner der Deutschen Oper Berlin, das Label Arthaus Musik, eine DVD-Edition mit Fernsehaufzeichnungen des Hauses aus den Jahren 1961 bis 1987. Den Beginn dieser Veröffentlichungen machte der Mitschnitt des DON GIOVANNI, mit dem das neue Gebäude der Deutschen Oper Berlin am 24. September 1961 eröffnet wurde. Unter den zahlreichen weiteren Fernsehaufzeichnungen, die im Rahmen der Edition erstmals auf DVD veröffentlicht werden, gehören so unterschiedliche Produktionen wie ein OTELLO aus dem Jahr 1962 mit Renata Tebaldi, FIDELIO (1963) mit Christa Ludwig, Verdis DON CARLOS von 1965 mit Pilar Lorengar und Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau, Cimarosas DIE HEIMLICHE EHE, dirigiert von Lorin Maazel (1967), die Wiederentdeckung von Carl Heinrich Grauns MONTEZUMA in der Regie von Herbert Wernicke (1982) oder die Götz-Friedrich-Inszenierung von Offenbachs ORPHEUS IN DER UNTERWELT, die 1983 mitgeschnitten wurde. Komplettiert wird die Edition mit Opern des 20. Jahrhunderts wie Erich Wolfgang Korngolds DIE TOTE STADT mit Karan Armstrong und James King (1983), Boris Blachers PREUSSISCHES MÄRCHEN (1974) und den beiden Uraufführungsproduktionen von Aribert Reimanns DIE GESPENSTERSONATE (1984) und Wolfgang Rihms OEDIPUS (1987). Über die aktuellen Planungen der Edition und deren Neuerscheinungen werden wir Sie laufend auf dieser Website informieren.

Partynacht auf der Bühne der Deutschen Oper Berlin | <i>(c) Bettina Stöß</i>

Partynacht auf der Bühne der Deutschen Oper Berlin | (c) Bettina Stöß

On November 5 2011 the 18th annual Charity Gala Night in aid of the German AIDS-foundation took place at Deutsche Oper Berlin.

The history of the Gala Nights began on October 21 1994 when journalist and presenter Ulrich Wickert hosted the first event. Among the contributing artists at the time were Lucia Aliberti, Agnes Baltsa, Marilyn Horne, Simon Estes, Jochen Kowalski, James Morris, Matti Salminen and Neil Shicoff. In the following year the night was hosted by Vicco von Bülow (Loriot), supported by the soloists Karan Armstrong, Robert Hale and René Kollo. With »Wagners Ring of the Nibelung in One Night« Loriot presented his very own take on »The Human and All Too Human Behaviour« in Wagner’s dramas.

After Hansjürgen Rosenbauer presented the third Gala Night with the support of the soloists Grace Bumbry, Montserrat Caballé, Ghena Dimitrova, Giacomo Arragall, Vladimir Chernov and Bernd Weikl, the following eight events until 2004 were again all hosted by Loriot. His so-called »necessary comments on examples of dramatic music« enraptured the audiences and were eye-openers to them – among them the Federal President and the Chancellor of Germany as well as other key representatives from society and politics. Loriot reveals the hidden secrets of the world of opera and shows how close this genre’s tragedy and pathos and intended and non-intended humour are to the major and minor catastrophes of every-day life.
In 2005 and 2006, several presenters such as Sabine Christiansen, Hellmuth Karasek, Helmut Lohner und Otto Sander took over from Loriot and since 2007 Max Raabe has been hosting the Gala Nights in his own sharp but relaxed way.

The Gala Nights of Deutsche Oper Berlin which have been headed by conductors such as Lawrence Foster, Jiri Kout, Kent Nagano and Christian Thielemann combine the glamorous event with a light-hearted approach to the world of opera true to Loriot’s style and at the same time have helped those people in urgent need of support thanks to the considerable donations generated for the German AIDS-foundation since 1994.

With the exception of the second Gala Night every night was broadcast on television and some on radio, too. Since the tenth charity event in 2003 all opera galas have been recorded and are available on CD and/or DVD. A percentage of the income from CD/DVD sales also goes to the German AIDS-foundation.
