The Orchestra:
Welcome to the 2021/22 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

concerts and recitals

Open-Air on the parking deck on 1 September2021
The Great Django
He played the guitar in his very own way and thus founded European jazz along the way - the guitarist and bandleader Django Reinhardt was already an absolute icon during his lifetime. Jazz guitarist Joscho Stephan - an important representative of modern Gypsy Swing for more than 20 years - dedicates a very special evening to the exceptional artist, full of the great music with which Reinhardt and violinist Stéphane Grappelli wrote jazz history in the 1930s.

About the performance

A concert film with musicians from the orchestra
Men, Myths, Fairy Tales
The works of Schumann ("Auf dem Rheine", "Belsazar"), Szymanowsky ("Mythen") and Telemann ("12 Marches heroiques") touch on various themes and motifs, all of which are of central importance to Wagner's DER RING DES NIBELUNGEN. The programme's conclusion is a direct homage to Wagner: a "Rheingold phantasmagoria" arranged by Douglas Brown for chamber ensemble and narrator, in which Wagner's letters are interwoven with passages from RHEINGOLD.

September Song
The Big Band of the Deutsche Oper Berlin and the singer Martina Bárta dedicate themselves to compositions from Kurt Weill's American creative period - songs which have been adapted many times worldwide and which have found their way into the large collection of outstanding American light music, the "Great American Songbook".

To the performance

At the Philharmonie - 10 September 2021
Britten: War Requiem
In music, too, post-war modernism was characterised by a radical new beginning and reflection on the past. Benjamin Britten's "War Requiem" is one of the defining works of the time. With this performance of "War Requiem" as part of the Musikfest Berlin, Sir Donald Runnicles resumes his series of Britten works.

History of the orchestra
The Ring of the Nibelung
For over 100 years, the history of our house has been inextricably linked with Wagner's opus summum. Almost four decades after Götz Friedrich's "time tunnel", Stefan Herheim and Sir Donald Runnicles are now forging a new RING: THE VALKYRIE and THE RHINEGOLD celebrated their premiere in the 2020/21 season, SIEGFRIED and TWILIGHT OF THE GODS will follow in autumn 2021. You can find out about this and about what moves the people involved in our RING after clicking on the button below.

Jazz & Lyrics 1 – on 12 September 2021
"Morgenstern and Gallows Songs"
Absurd, humorous and always worded to the point so that the razor-sharp observer can be made out behind them – Christian Morgenstern's poems inspire just as much in the year of his 150th birthday as they once did. Together with actress Yara Blümel, musicians from the BigBand discover musical moments in Morgenstern's oeuvre.

Concert of the Orchestra Academics - on 4 October
"On the Catwalk"
For the musicians of the orchestra of the Deutsche Oper Berlin, their series of chamber-music sessions is a wish come true. Taking their inspiration from key operas on the programme, they put together concert programmes linked to works that they hold particularly dearly. In the first concert of the season, members of our Orchestra Academy play works by Max Reger, Claude Debussy and Ludwig van Beethoven.
