The Orchestra:
Welcome to our October 2020
One of the most amazing qualities of Richard Wagner, in my view, is the tenacity with which he pursued his artistic visions. Wagner spent a quarter of a century working on his RING idea even though for ages it didn’t look like it had the faintest hope of ever seeing the light of day. I get a kick out of reminding myself of that fact on a regular basis, now that we’re staging the work – because now it’s us nurturing the dream to get a version of the RING up on stage. And despite the stumbling blocks that we keep coming up against, we’re all working passionately – and with the necessary caution – to make our dream of a VALKYRIE premiere come true on 27th September. – Cross your fingers that we pull it off! Your Donald Runnicles

About us

It began with Furtwängler and Walter. Then came Sinopoli, Mehta, Thielemann and Runnicles. The orchestra is one of the top addresses in the world of opera.

History of the orchestra
Hush, not long now
The musicians of the orchestra are taking their places … The last time they were here in the pit was for Meyerbeer’s LES HUGUENOTS on 8th March. Now, more than six months later, a hundred musicians are back, hoping to make the dream come true: to the premiere of THE VALKYRIE on 27th September 2020.

The Symphony Concerts
Great conductors such as Bruno Walter and Lorin Maazel shaped the orchestra of the Deutsche Oper Berlin not only in the pit, but also on the concert podium. Donald Runnicles and the musicians* demonstrate their stylistic versatility with summit works of the Romantic symphony, with gala evenings, children's concerts and a joint programme with our BigBand.

Our symphony concerts

Chamber Music
The atmosphere of the Tischlerei concerts is uniquely intimate, up-beat and workshoppy. Inspired by the premieres or revivals taking place on the main stage, their brief is to present singers giving their personal take on works close to their heart. The evenings of lieder in the foyer centre on our ensemble soloists but are also interspersed with poetry in collaboration with the Haus für Poesie.

Recitals

Jazz Concerts
Works of swing and funk, performed in a new way and with consummate virtuosity – this is what the BigBand and guests are all about. The opera house reverberates to the sound of jazz standards by Count Basie, Duke Ellington, Sammy Nestico, Cole Porter, Irving Berlin or Frank Sinatra. These evenings offer “Take the A Train” instead of Puccini, “Night and Day” in place of Verdi, and so on. The concerts are sell-out events and never fail to delight.
