Der Ring des Nibelungen

Cycle 3 - 28, 29, 31 May / 2 June 2024

Bühnenfestspiel  for three days and one eve
In German with German and English surtitles.


A group of people meet a concert grand piano on an empty stage, a note is struck, and slowly a world of fantasy, longing and intoxication unfolds, captivating everyone and fusing them into a community. This is how DAS RHEINGOLD begins, directed by Stefan Herheim, which has been continuing the over one hundred-year tradition of performances of Wagner's tetralogy at the Deutsche Oper Berlin since 2021. True to Wagner's core idea of creating a modern equivalent to the community-building power of Greek theatre, for the German-Norwegian director gold is a symbol of the play itself and its magical effect on people. On the four evenings, Herheim creates an arc that leads through stations of the performance history finally to the foyer of the Deutsche Oper Berlin with its emblematic cloud sculpture. This RING is a play that often works with seemingly the simplest theatrical means, such as a white, amazingly versatile cloth, and thus challenges the audience's power of imagination, but precisely by doing so allows it to become an indispensable part of the performance.


The three cycles are sold exclusively as a four-performance package. It is not possible to swap between the individual cycles.

Adventskalender in der Tischlerei: Das 11. Fensterchen

"Ding Dong! Merrily on High"
with the VoiceChangers and Rosemarie Arzt
17.00 h / Tischlerei
Duration: approx. 25 minutes / free admission

Often since primary school, the soloists in today's Advent Window have been members of the children's chorus of the Deutsche Oper Berlin. They have sung in WOZZECK, TOSCA, OTELLO, BORIS GODUNOW, CARMEN, TURANDOT, LA BOHÈME, HÄNSEL UND GRETEL or PARSIFAL. Whereas being in a youth chorus is quite easy for girls up to the higher grades, the boys' voices break at some point. The larynx and vocal folds grow, during which the young singers temporarily lose their previously secure grip on their entire tonal spectrum. In the past, young people were often forced to remain silent until the "new voice" had grown in them. At the Deutsche Oper Berlin, Rosemarie Arzt coaches the rapidly growing voice changer group, which was founded eleven years ago, through this difficult phase. Today they sing Christmas carols, Christmas carols and a cappella versions of well-known "seasonal hits" in the Advent calendar on the foyer stage.
