Welcome to the 2022/23 season!

As people who commute to work at an opera house, our day job consists of channelling our energies and enthusiasm into using music and drama to tell stories. But in addition to this we all nurture a secondary passion – a desire to simply play music straight, to enjoy it for its own sake without the costumes and stage set. This can be in the form of jazz, kunstlieder, chamber music or the full-bodied sound of the orchestra delivering a symphony. The Deutsche Oper Berlin provides a space for all these initiatives, material that includes chamber music concerts in the Tischlerei, the “Songs and Poets” and “Jazz & Lyrics” programmes, and concerts on the main stage given by our orchestra and the BigBand ... We look forwards to seeing you, Your Dietmar Schwarz

Welcome

Symphony Concert: Beethoven and Zemlinsky

Zemlinsky's symphony on poems by Rabindranath Tagore is one of the central works for solo voice and orchestra, along with Mahler's "Lied von der Erde". Sir Donald Runnicles pairs it with Beethoven's light-filled Second Symphony. Soloists are Flurina Stucki and Thomas Lehman.

Spotlights

Musicians of the orchestra play works that are particularly close to their hearts. These can be well-known pieces of the chamber music repertoire, but also trouvailles that are hardly ever heard in the concert hall. This concert will feature works by Dmitri Shostakovich, André Jolivet (photo), Luciano Berio, Derek Burgeois, Ernest Bloch and Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy.
