2021/22 season kick-off:

Dear audience members, the re-opening of the Deutsche Oper on 24th September 1961 was more than simply an important event in the cultural landscape of Germany. The inauguration of Fritz Bornemann’s building was not only a testament to the tenacity and resilience of West Berlin; as an example of »democratic« architecture, the structure itself was also a statement about the character of the city, the façade representing both a protective haven for the arts and a welcoming transparency for the opera-going public and the auditorium affording each of the 1,865 seats an unimpeded view of the stage. To mark the 60th anniversary of the venue’s resurrection we are shining a spotlight on Fritz Bornemann’s edifice – partly because we love the place, partly because we have once again reached a point where we need to rethink what we want from art and what it can give us. To this end we have put together a mixed programme of events that reflect the ties between musical theatre, visual arts and architecture. —

About the performance

At the Philharmonie - 10 September 2021
Benjamin 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, Donald Runnicles resumes his series of Britten works, adding to the events remembering the 1961 inauguration of the Deutsche Oper Berlin, whose reconstruction coincided with Britten’s work on his Requiem.
