In this door we take a look at Christmas traditions and customs of famous composers. District Mayor Reinhardt Naumann reads from selected correspondence by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Johannes Brahms and Felix Mendelssohn-Bartholdy and many more, all dated around Christmas time. Johannes Brahms' "Two Songs" for voice, viola and piano will follow. In them, Brahms combined elements of baroque chant with the art song and brought the longing for deep emotional calm to a sublime musical expression.


Our Advent calendar is already a tradition. From Monday to Friday, between 1 and 23 December, there is singing, music and also talking about art and music in the Rang-Foyer or on Götz-Friedrich-Platz. The concerts begin at 5 p.m. and admission is free.

Experience members of the Deutsche Oper Berlin ensembles - singers and scholarship holders, chorus soloists and musicians - together with guests who, like Reinhard Naumann, have close ties to the house. The foyers of the Deutsche Oper Berlin thus become places where younger and older generations, opera lovers and opera newcomers meet.

At the weekends and on Christmas Eve, online prize draws are held on the homepage of our website.
