My piece Deutsche Oper Berlin

 

Bums on seats are an essential factor in the economics of any opera house and at the Deutsche Oper Berlin their owners have been charmed, swept away - and sometimes irritated - by the proceedings on stage. Now you can be involved in the renovation of the seating by donating towards the cost of this meticulous labour of love.

Hundreds of individual components go to make up a chair. Each piece is a part of the whole and is indispensable in its own way. Our seats were designed by the architect of our building, Fritz Bornemann, and are a key feature of its 1960s aesthetic. The striking corn yellow of the upholstery is one of the core elements. The look and functionality of the seats are in harmony with the architecture of the opera house in general and the auditorium in particular. The Deutsche Oper Berlin has listed-building status and as such its seating is likewise covered by a preservation order.

In the same way that we are continually renewing our repertoire, the time has come for us to carry out restoration work on our seats in a manner that conserves their originality and history. You can donate towards the cost of carrying out this tender and time-consuming task.
