Ticket return


Ladies and Gentlemen, dear visitors!

Regretfully we see ourselves compelled by the present situation concerning the coronavirus to cancel all performances up to and including 19 April 2020. Here we are acting in accordance with the Senator for Culture and Europe, Dr. Klaus Lederer, who has cancelled all planned performances of the state theatres, operas and concert halls in Berlin for the time being until the end of the Easter holidays, that is until 19 April 2020. Tickets for the performances that have already been paid will be refunded. To request a refund, we ask you to provide the information below so that we can process your request as soon as possible.


With respect to our calendar for May, we have regretfully had to cancel the premiere of Pyotr I. Tchaikovsky’s THE QUEEN OF SPADES, scheduled for the 9th May – and will post up the new date of the premiere in due course. This has sadly been necessary, as the current regulations relating to gatherings make it clear that all of our departments would be prevented from preparing and rehearsing for the event. With the premiere postponed, all other performances of THE QUEEN OF SPADES scheduled for May have also been cancelled. As already announced in respect of performances up to 19th April, the price of any tickets purchased will be reimbursed. Depending on how the situation evolves, performances of other works will be scheduled to fill THE QUEEN OF SPADES dates. Details will be provided in good time.

For children




Now that schools and daycare centres have been closed to stem the spread of the corona virus, the Deutsche Oper Berlin is offering a recording of the successful production THE SNOW QUEEN for children. The production by Brigitte Dethier, together with the composer Samuel Penderbayne, has created captivating music theatre for everyone from the age of 8, based on Hans Christian Andersen's art fairy tale. All the better to be able to deliver the production 'home' for 6 days now - it can be experienced live again from December 2020 (advance booking starts on 27 April). We thank all contributors for their kind consent.

Viral infections – Hygiene works!


If you need to cough or sneeze, use a tissue or the crook of your arm – if you use a tissue, make sure you dispose of your used tissue in a bin with a lid.

Keep your hands away from your face – avoid touching your mouth, eyes or nose with your hands.

Keep your distance from people who are coughing, sniffling or who have a fever – including those suffering from seasonal cold and flu illnesses.

Avoid touching (e.g. shaking hands or hugs) when you greet other people or say goodbye.

Wash your hands regularly and properly (at least 20 seconds) with soap and water – especially after blowing your nose, sneezing or coughing.
