About the performance

In word and music, the memorial concert commemorates members of the Deutsche Opernhaus who were persecuted or murdered by the National Socialist regime. Georg Freude, Beata Malkin, Julia Marcus and Wally Ofner-Tuchler will be introduced. Music by Hanns Eisler, John Cage and Julius Fucik, among others.


With their chamber music series, the musicians of the Deutsche Oper Berlin Orchestra fulfil a wish: inspired by productions from the opera programme, they put together concert programmes with works that are close to their hearts. The concerts take place in the stage sets of the respective current Tischlerei production.
