Dear friends of opera!

The Society of Friends and Patrons of the Deutsche Oper Berlin have been providing active, committed and enthusiastic support to Berlin’s largest opera house since 1982. We are a group of people who have a close emotional attachment to the institution. The Deutsche Oper Berlin is known for the calibre and quality of its ensemble and artists, the fine acoustics and its excellent views of the stage from all corners of the auditorium – and we want to raise the public profile of these attributes. Our activities also include helping the ensemble to realise special artistic visions. Would you like to get involved? Please ask about the benefits associated with being a Society member. We will happily tailor an individual package to your requirements. We look forward to hearing from you!

Sincerely, André Schmitz,
Chairman of Förderkreis der Deutschen Oper Berlin e.V.

Podcast of the Förderkreis ... Episode #17

In duet with Carsten Meyer

He has been rocking the stage of the Deutsche Oper Berlin for decades - sometimes as a servant or Lohengrin himself, sometimes as a string-puller backstage, enriching many of the theatre's productions with his 300 or so extras. Carsten Meyer - head of the extras department - tells us what it means to be responsible for light girls, acrobats and dromedaries, and what else is involved in the work of the extras department at the Deutsche Oper Berlin.

Franz Schreker: Der Schatzgräber

Like almost all of Schreker's operas, this one also poses the question of the relationship between fantasy and reality: soulmates Els and Elis chase after different treasures. But even the possession of all the gold jewellery does not satisfy either of their desires. And so this Schreker opera is once again about longing itself, which the composer calls the real "treasure". Conductor: Marc Albrecht; Director: Christof Loy; With Elisabet Strid and Daniel Johansson, among others.

We thank the Förderkreis and the Circle 2020 for their great support

Without the Förderkreis and this very special circle, the new production of the RING would not have been possible. The first two cycles in November were recorded by NAXOS. After post-production of the recording, the RING DES NIBELUNGEN will be available in Germany on the ARD Mediathek and internationally on MarqueeTV in spring 2022. In autumn 2022, Naxos will release the RING cycle in a DVD or Blu-ray box set.
