Obligatory identification and personal data
The acquisition of your contact details (first and last name, full address or email address and telephone number) when you purchase a ticket serves to enable health authorities to trace and break chains of infection more quickly in the event of any infections. If you buy tickets for other people, you are obliged to provide their personal data as well.
Please note that tickets are non-transferable in the current pandemic situation. If you have any questions, please contact the box office or use the telephonic ticket-hotline on +49 30 343 84 343.
During the evening of the event, all visitors are obliged to carry their identity cards with them and present the same upon request at the entry gate when buying tickets at the box office.
The tickets can be purchased in advance and online. Payments at the box office should mainly be cashless.
For performances in the large hall, the evening box office opens one hour before each performance in the box office hall of the Deutsche Oper Berlin. At the box office, you will only receive tickets for the performance on that evening; you cannot make any advance bookings for other performances at this time. To make other bookings, you can use the box office times from Monday through Saturday from 12:00 hrs onwards.
Please understand that in view of the current pandemic situation, it is not possible to attend performances of the Deutsche Oper Berlin in the following cases:
Access to the events is not possible for persons who are infected with COVID-19 or show symptoms that are typical for a COVID-19 disease. Based on the information provided by the Robert Koch Institute, typical symptoms of COVID-19 disease are fever, cough and sore throat as well as a loss of sense of smell and taste.
Persons who have had contact with a person who has been diagnosed with COVID-19 disease within the previous 14 days are also not allowed to attend Deutsche Oper Berlin events. This exclusion does not apply to persons who have professional contact with COVID-19 patients, provided that the applicable safety measures could be observed.
Furthermore, visitors suffering from an upper respiratory tract infection are not allowed to participate in the events.
If it is not possible to attend your desired performance for one of the above reasons, tickets that are already purchased can be cancelled at the box office or by calling the ticket-hotline at least two hours before the performance.
Minimum distances between seats
In order to allow a larger number of visitors to visit the Deutsche Oper Berlin than previously, the seating plan for performances from 27 September, 2020 onwards has been changed in agreement with the Senate Department for Culture so that there is a minimum distance of 1 meter between the individual seats. For the preceding performances, which are already on advance sale, the minimum distance between seats will continue to be 1,5 meters. We will ensure that the necessary minimum distances are maintained by blocking the corresponding seats.
Mouth and nose cover
Within our opera house it is mandatory to wear a mouth and nose cover. You are allowed to take off the mouth-nose cover on the seats during the performance in the performances taking place until 26 September. As of 27 September, the obligation to wear a mouth-nose cover also applies to your seat, so that even if the minimum distance between seats is slightly reduced, the necessary protection against infection is maintained.
If it is not possible to wear a mouth-nose-cover due to a health impairment or disability, a medical certificate must be carried along and presented to the admission staff without being asked. Deaf people and their accompanying person who communicate with them and children up to the age of 6 years are also exempt from the obligation to wear a mask.
Visitors who wish to attend performances without mouth-nose cover within the framework of the above-mentioned regulations are requested to book their tickets exclusively via our telephone ticket service.
In the event that you are unable to wear a mouth-nose mask when visiting the Opera House for the above-mentioned reasons, we also draw your attention to the general, in this case increased risk of infection.
