The individual sale for all performances from 11 May to 2 June 2024 has begun.

Der Ring des Nibelungen

A group of people meet a grand piano on an empty stage, a note is struck, and slowly a world of fantasy, longing and intoxication unfolds, captivating everyone and fusing them into a community. This is how DAS RHEINGOLD, directed by Stefan Herheim, begins, true to Wagner's core idea of creating a modern equivalent to the community-building power of Greek theatre. On the four evenings, Herheim creates an arc that leads through stations in the performance history and finally into the foyer of the Deutsche Oper with its cloud sculpture.

Das Rheingold

Die Walküre

After the reign of the gods has reached its radiant zenith at the end of the RHEINGOLD with the entry into Valhalla Castle, the signs in the WALKÜRE are stormy: the people are frozen in greed for power, mistrust and possessiveness, the gods confine themselves only to monitoring compliance with the old laws instead of questioning their meaning ...

Siegfried

Wagner described his SIEGFRIED as a "heroic comedy" which, in its balance between comic and tragic elements, remains the challenge for its directors to this day. For Herheim, it is the act of the play that joins the opposites into a whole. The boundaries between animal and human become as blurred as those between the characters and their creator...

Götterdämmerung

In the final part of the tetralogy, the theatrical devices that dominate Stefan Herheim's version of the RING also come together for the grand finale: the concert grand piano, where the play once began, is just as present as the white cloth, which, among other things, mutates into the shroud of the murdered hero. And, of course, the suitcases are also present, which in the course of the tetralogy have repeatedly created new landscapes and play situations. In the end, this world sinks, only to be reborn in the next play ...

Camilla Nylund as Tosca

"For me, the role of Floria Tosca is something very special. The music has a tremendous urgency and emotionality, no bar is too much, you really have to throw yourself into the role with everything you've got - and of course control your voice at the same time. What also fascinates me about Puccini is his empathy and his sense of the needs of the women of his time: Tosca is a person of flesh and blood, a fighter who never loses hope until the end despite the insidiousness and cruelty around her - an idealist and probably the only humanist in the entire opera," says Camilla about the role of Tosca, which she sings on 16 and 23 June. At her side will be Vittorio Grigolo and Erwin Schrott, among others.

Richard Tucker Award Winner 2024

Our congratulations to Clay Hilley

His Berlin Siegfried brought him his breakthrough: with his portrayal of Wagner's hero in the new production at the Deutsche Oper Berlin in November 2021, US-American Clay Hilley instantly became one of the most sought-after heldentenors on the international opera scene. The New York-based Richard Tucker Music Foundation has now honoured this by awarding Hilley the prize named after its namesake, thereby admitting him to an exclusive club that includes some of the best singers in the world. Previous winners of the Richard Tucker Award include Joyce Di Donato, Renée Fleming and Deborah Voigt. And even though Hilley now performs at all the world's major opera houses, he is particularly loyal to the house where his career began: At the Deutsche Oper Berlin, he can not only be seen in the current performances of the RING, but will return here in the coming season as Tristan and Tannhäuser as well as Calaf in Puccini's TURANDOT.

Shall I Build a Dam? - from 21 June 2024

Simone Aughterlony – My private retreat

“On the contrary, we love difference. But instead of celebrating classifications and defined states, we look at change, at transitory shifts. Everything is in flux. There’s no getting away from it. Building dams won’t help, be they real-life barriers or mental blockages. […] The show is an invitation to re-consider our compartmentalised thinking. With the transformation of water in mind, we pose a string of questions: Where do bodies end and where does nature begin? When does culture latch on? If everything is in flux, what is female and what is male? Instead of cheering on a rigidly binary culture, we encourage people to accept all existence for what it is: i.e. fluid.” This is what Simone Aughterlony says about our new Tischlerei production. Read more about Aughterlony in her "My private retreat" blog or about the production in the programme.

Shall I Build a Dam?
In weißem T-Shirt und einer blau und gold gemusterten Hose sitzt Simone Aughterlony  auf dem Rand ihrer Badewanne, von der sie sagt, dass sie dort während eines Bades am besten denken und den Tag planen kann.

The Canterville Ghost

Canterville Castle has been haunted for generations, but that doesn't stop the American envoy Hiram B. Otis from buying the old walls. As an enlightened American, he does not believe these English tales. And so hard times begin for the old castle ghost. Martin Auer and Rüdiger Ruppert have created an impressive narrative concert with Christian Brückner and the Wild Jazz Orchestra. A work of sound art for the whole family!
