A piece of the Deutsche Oper Berlin

Our seats are covered by a preservation order and are being lovingly restored. Please help us with the project!

We would like to express our heartfelt thanks to all of our donors
Our donors

We have sat on them and been charmed, touched, riveted, sometimes annoyed. Now the seating is being overhauled. Be part of the project and support us in the loving restoration of our listed-status seats.

A chair is made up of a hundred different components, each with its role to play in holding the whole construction together. Our seats were designed by the architect of the opera house, Fritz Bornemann, and are an important part of the building’s 1960s aesthetic. The corn yellow of the upholstery is key to the look that audiences are familiar with today. The visual impact of the seating and its functionality dovetail harmoniously with the architecture of the auditorium and the building as a whole. The Deutsche Oper Berlin as an ensemble is a listed structure and the seating is included under the preservation order.

In the same way that our repertoire is constantly being tweaked and renewed, our seats, too, are now due for an overhaul - in a way that conserves their originality and history. This will involve the painstaking work of professionals and you can support us in this lovingly executed restoration project.

Each contribution goes towards the beautification of our seating. Many thanks for your assistance. We look forward with you to the new seats.
