See and hear here audience voices after the premiere on 1 May 2022.

„The Young Person’s Guide to the Orchestra“

... is the orchestral introductory piece par excellence. For this 20-minute work, in which the entire sound and expressive palette of the orchestra is fanned out in a series of variations for the various orchestral groups, Britten drew on a "catchy tune" by Henry Purcell. For conductor Dominic Limburg, one of the tasks of any orchestra is to develop formats for children and young people. Limburg and the musicians are supported by Malte Arkona, who is passionate about conveying classical music to children and young people in a humorous, unconventional and knowledgeable way.

DIE MEISTERSINGER ..., from 12 June

Power. Abuse. Music.

Art and artistry, rules and breaks, tradition, innovation, old versus new, a young genius who finds his mentor. DIE MEISTERSINGER VON NÜRNBERG is also an opera about the profession of singing - and thus tells of our industry: of drill, of discipline, of not being allowed to fail, of fears. Jossi Wieler explains why he and his team have moved the action to a music academy.

Johan Reuter takes you on a cycling tour of Copenhagen

"My roles, the music, the opera, it's all far away when I'm on the bike. The meaning of cycling for me is to step out of my everyday life with body and mind." Johan Reuter finds distance from everyday life on his bicycle tours through Copenhagen - and along the way he keeps rediscovering his home city. Now he is discovering new facets in Wagner's MEISTERSINGER VON NÜRNBERG, where he interprets the role of Hans Sachs.

Marc Albrecht takes you for a walk through the Charlottenburg Palace park

I get my peace and quiet here. And I really need that downtime after all the travelling and poring over scores, because our prep work as conductors is very much brain-based, deskbound, drawing-board stuff. I’m isolating an opera’s structures and sound mixes, playing passages on the piano, and so on. The longer I spend on it, the more the music grows in richness and rubs off on me ... Marc Albrecht conducts Schreker's DER SCHATZGRÄBER.

Wagner: Tannhäuser und der Sängerkrieg auf Wartburg

The reputation of the Chorus of the Deutsche Oper Berlin as one of the world’s leading opera choruses is due in no small part to its contribution to Wagner’s great work of Romantic opera. Among the charming features of Kirsten Harms’s production is the contrast she draws between the gaudy mediaeval era and modern-day ascetism ...

In memory of Mariana Cioromila

Mozart opened the doors of the Deutsche Oper to her: Mariana Cioromila made her debut here in April 1989 as Dorabella in COSÌ FAN TUTTE. More than 250 evenings followed as a member of the ensemble: among others as Sesto in LA CLEMENZA DI TITO, as Eboli in DON CARLO, Maddalena in RIGOLETTO, Preziosilla in LA FORZA DEL DESTINO, Laura in LA GIOCONDA, as the Witch in HÄNSEL UND GRETEL and Mary in THE FLYING HOLLANDS and finally Marina in Mussorgsky's BORIS GODUNOW alongside Matti Salminen and René Kollo. Now the news has reached us that Mariana Cioromila passed away a few days ago in Brasilia at the age of 70. Deutsche Oper Berlin will honour her memory.
