The Orchestra:
Welcome to the 2021/22 season!
As people who commute to work at an opera house, our day job consists of channelling our energies and enthusiasm into using music and drama to tell stories. But in addition to this we all nurture a secondary passion – a desire to simply play music straight, to enjoy it for its own sake without the costumes and stage set. This can be in the form of jazz, kunstlieder, chamber music or the full-bodied sound of the orchestra delivering a symphony. The Deutsche Oper Berlin provides a space for all these initiatives, material that includes chamber music concerts in the Tischlerei, the “Songs and Poets” and “Jazz & Lyrics” programmes, and concerts on the main stage given by our orchestra and the BigBand.

We look forwards to seeing you! Your Dietmar Schwarz

Premiere on 30 January 2022
Rued Langgaard: Antikrist
The immensely powerful imagery of the winner of multiple "Junior Director of the Year", Ersan Mondtag, seems to be made for Langgaard's eschatological mysteriousness through its over-aestheticization.

History of the orchestra
The Ring of the Nibelung
For over 100 years, the history of our house has been inextricably linked with Wagner's opus summum. Almost four decades after Götz Friedrich's "time tunnel", Stefan Herheim and Sir Donald Runnicles are now forging a new RING: THE VALKYRIE and THE RHINEGOLD celebrated their premiere in the 2020/21 season, SIEGFRIED and TWILIGHT OF THE GODS will follow in autumn 2021. You can find out about this and about what moves the people involved in our RING after clicking on the button below.

A concert film with musicians from the orchestra
Men, Myths, Fairy Tales
The works of Schumann ("Auf dem Rheine", "Belsazar"), Szymanowsky ("Mythen") and Telemann ("12 Marches heroiques") touch on various themes and motifs, all of which are of central importance to Wagner's DER RING DES NIBELUNGEN. The programme's conclusion is a direct homage to Wagner: a "Rheingold phantasmagoria" arranged by Douglas Brown for chamber ensemble and narrator, in which Wagner's letters are interwoven with passages from RHEINGOLD.
