Patrons (Förderkreis):
Dear friends of opera!
The Society of Friends and Patrons of the Deutsche Oper Berlin have been providing active, committed and enthusiastic support to Berlin’s largest opera house since 1982. We are a group of people who have a close emotional attachment to the institution. The Deutsche Oper Berlin is known for the calibre and quality of its ensemble and artists, the fine acoustics and its excellent views of the stage from all corners of the auditorium – and we want to raise the public profile of these attributes. Our activities also include helping the ensemble to realise special artistic visions. Would you like to get involved? Please ask about the benefits associated with being a Society member. We will happily tailor an individual package to your requirements. We look forward to hearing from you!
Sincerely, André Schmitz,
Chairman of Förderkreis der Deutschen Oper Berlin e.V.


A great result!
In a spectacular auction Dr. Kilian Jay von Seldeneck succeeded in coaxing our members to follow the bidding all the way and pay large sums for delights such as a role as an extra in DIE FLEDERMAUS or a reading with Margot Friedländer. The proceeds of the evening enabled the Society to spend over €65,000 on a new double bass.

A Journey to Florence

Our itinerary for the coming year includes a trip to Florence in the Tuscan capital's opera house, which opened in 2014. The travel date is 29 March to 2 April 2020. Please see the attached programme for further details. Since we have had the experience during the last trips that we are very quickly fully booked, I would ask you to contact us as soon as possible.



Closed event: 29 March to 2 April 2020
Dress rehearsal „Heart Chamber“

A new piece of musical theatre by Chaya Czernowin is bound to be a special, not to say surprising, experience, and we’re currently gearing up for her latest offering. HEART CHAMBER heads right to the heart of the matter: it’s an opera about love, about the tiniest and biggest moments in an encounter between two people. A combine made up of soloists, chorus, orchestra and electronics generates great splurges of music alongside acoustic expressions of hush and intimacy.



Closed event: 23 January 2020
Jour Fixe with Antje Obenaus

The chorus of the Deutsche Oper Berlin provides many of our guests with a great musical delight. But what it means as a member of the chorus to take part in the many evenings, to learn new things and to always have the old at our fingertips is what Antje Obenaus will tell us at our Jour Fixe evening.
