Special:
Dear patrons,
A new piece of musical theatre by Chaya Czernowin is bound to be a special, not to say surprising, experience: HEART CHAMBER heads right to the heart of the matter: it’s an opera about love, about the tiniest and biggest moments in an encounter between two people. A combine made up of soloists, chorus, orchestra and electronics generates great splurges of music alongside acoustic expressions of hush and intimacy. We proudly present a top-notch cast of artists: Patrizia Ciofi and Dietrich Henschel, two of the biggest names on the opera circuit, the “Ensemble Nikel”, currently on international tour, and three vocal artists working with Neue Musik, Noa Frenkel, Terry Wey and Frauke Aulbert: all are thrown together in this extraordinary premiere. We look forward to seeing you!

Heart Chamber

An interview with Claus Guth
Psychedelic rollercoaster ride
For many years Claus Guth has been one of the world’s outstanding directors of opera, always on the lookout for present-day topicality and relevance in the classic repertory works. Yet he repeatedly finds that it is the new musical-theatre works of the 21st century that pose the trickiest challenges. Claus Guth is now about to stage “Heart Chamber”, a new opera by Chaya Czernowin, at the Deutsche Oper Berlin.

Heart Chamber
Chaya Czernowin's premieres in musical theatre have always been celebrated as special events: both PNIMA ... INS INNERE in 2000 and INFINITE NOW 17 years later were named "Premieres of the Year" by critics for the publication “Opernwelt”. A frequent congenial partner through all this has been director Claus Guth who, after PNIMA and ZAIDE/ADAMA which premiered at the Salzburger Festspiele in 2005, is now staging a new work by Chaya Czernowin for the third time with HEART CHAMBER.

From the final scenic rehearsals
"It's growing in the right direction."
Chaya Czernowin describes the status of the current stage dress rehearsals for her composition HEART CHAMBER with typical theatrical understatement and at the same time enthuses about director Claus Guth and conductor Johannes Kalitzke.
