The Orchestra:
Welcome to the 2019/20 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

About us

It began with Furtwängler and Walter. Then came Sinopoli, Mehta, Thielemann and Runnicles. The orchestra is one of the top addresses in the world of opera.

History of the orchestra
Simon Trpceski
The debut with the Orchestra of the Deutsche Oper on 18 October 2019
“Trpčeski’s art is to probe deep beneath the notes and elicit the essential character and substance of a score. […] Deftness and passion made for a performance that was extra-ordinarily compelling in its freshness and in its capacity to expose the music’s very heart.” The Telegraph cheers for the pianist. Experience Simon Trpceski with Rachmaninov's Piano Concerto No. 2 in C minor op.18 conducted by Juraj Valcuha.

Symphony Concerts
The Orchestra of the Deutsche Oper Berlin is known for a warm, cantabile sound that betrays its daily contact with the world’s best singers. Sometimes it’s as if the musicians had conjured song from their instruments. Savour symphony concerts with works by Berlioz, Rachmaninov, Shostakovich, Bruch or Beethoven’s 9th Symphony. Juraj Valcuha (photo) will make his debut with the orchestra of the Deutsche Oper Berlin.

Our symphony concerts

Chamber Music
The atmosphere of the Tischlerei concerts is uniquely intimate, up-beat and workshoppy. Inspired by the premieres or revivals taking place on the main stage, their brief is to present singers giving their personal take on works close to their heart. The evenings of lieder in the foyer centre on our ensemble soloists but are also interspersed with poetry in collaboration with the Haus für Poesie.

Recitals

Jazz Concerts
Works of swing and funk, performed in a new way and with consummate virtuosity – this is what the BigBand and guests are all about. The opera house reverberates to the sound of jazz standards by Count Basie, Duke Ellington, Sammy Nestico, Cole Porter, Irving Berlin or Frank Sinatra. These evenings offer “Take the A Train” instead of Puccini, “Night and Day” in place of Verdi, and so on. The concerts are sell-out events and never fail to delight.
