In memoriam Edita Gruberová

Rarely in the subjective world of opera is a singer accorded the mantle of queen by general consensus. Edita Gruberová was one such person. As the queen of dramatic bel canto for over a quarter of a century, she dominated a landscape that had the Romantic operas of Bellini and Donizetti at its core. We are now saddened by the news that Edita Gruberová has passed away. The Deutsche Oper Berlin will always cherish the memory of Edita Gruberová.

In memoriam Udo Zimmermann

The Deutsche Oper Berlin mourns the death of its former artistic director Udo Zimmermann, who died on 22 October. His directorship lasted only two years, but he set important impulses: he continued the tradition of the house as a place of productive, sometimes controversial engagement with tradition and repertoire, as well as making it a place of the contemporary - and thus formulated an ethos that continues to have an impact today and at the same time challenges it again and again.

In memory of Kammersängerin Karan Armstrong

Like few singers before her, Karan Armstrong was a continual presence at the Deutsche Oper Berlin for almost four decades, beginning with her 1977 debut as Salome and ending with her final turn as Larina in Tchaikovsky’s EUGEN ONEGIN in 2016, a career spanning over 400 performances covering 24 different roles. The Deutsche Oper Berlin mourns the passing of a great singer-performer and will long cherish its memory of Karan Armstrong.

Twilight of the Gods: An introduction

A band of people on the run pause and try to get a grip on what is happening to them. Thus begins Stefan Herheim’s version of the RING OF THE NIBELUNG, the final part of the tetralogy, which winds up the story in the here and now. A game ensues that is fated to end in a form of apocalypse, so that the world can begin again from zero. Dramaturgs Alexander Meier-Dörzenbach and Jörg Königsdorf give an overview of the central themes and motifs.

NEW SCENES V - from 6 November 2021

The thousand fires of freedom

The age of witch burnings is over – but women are still being disadvantaged, tormented, murdered. Three world premieres are dedicated to women who experience their "funeral pyre" in one way or another: As lesbian lovers, in a radical no to male body images or through Satanism and patricide. Three directors - Andrea Tortosa Baquero, Ana Cuéllar Velasco and Nora Krahl - shine a spotlight on the modern struggle for liberation in these chamber operas.
