Season 19/20:
Dear Readers,
The premieres address the basic questions of our existence: Verdi's LA FORZA DEL DESTINO shows a world where there is no place for forgiveness, while in HEART CHAMBER Chaya Czernowin addresses the energy of attraction and repulsion that shape the relationship between two people. While Britten investigates the confusions that stem from the meshing of desire and love in his MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S DREAM, Tchaikovsky shows in his QUEEN OF SPADES an outsider whose sole raison d'être is his faith in the luck of a card game. And both the Danish pariah composer Langgaard, whose only opera ANTIKRIST we are presenting in Berlin for the first time, and Richard Wagner in his RING, were preoccupied with the idea of using art to show humanity the way to a better existence. We look forward to seeing you! Yours, Dietmar Schwarz!

Viva Italia!
No country has defined opera as much as Italy, nowhere else have so many masterpieces been created. That is why the Deutsche Oper Berlin is dedicating an entire month to Italian opera. The concert premiere of ADRIANA LECOUVREUR with Anna Netrebko is opening up the season together with LA FORZA DEL DESTINO. CAVALLERIA RUSTICANA/PAGLIACCI with Roberto Alagna among others, UN BALLO IN MASCHERA and LA TRAVIATA with Piotr Beczala, and NABUCCO with Maria Guleghina will also be performed.

Music of the future
Premieres are written with a capital 'P' at the Deutsche Oper Berlin. On the big stage, composer Chaya Czernowin includes the entire audience space in her work HEART CHAMBER with the latest acoustic technology. At the Tischlerei, young Berlin native Malte Giesen dares to enter the Wolf's Glen in WOLFSSCHLUCHT. And six exciting composers of our time draw inspiration from the sketches by Greek avant-gardist Jani Christou: THE PROJECT – ONCE TO BE REALISED.

About the performance

Starting up

It is a beloved tradition to begin our season with performances at a flat rate. This year we invite you to Mozart's DON GIOVANNI (recommended for ages 16 and up) at the price of €25.00 per seat. In Roland Schwab's pitch-black rendition, this tempter of all tempters moves through the world of women, while our ensemble around Samuel Dale Johnson and Seth Carico follow Mozart and Schwab's every word.

 

 

Don Giovanni – 30 August; 1 September
Icy dreams for children

"The Snow Queen" is one of Hans Christian Andersen's most beloved fairy tales. In the Advent season the Tischlerei will turn into a kingdom of ice and snow to tell the tale of Kay and Gerda. The music is written by young Australian Samuel Penderbayne. Recommended for ages 8 and up.

The Snow Queen – 22 November 2019
On the course of discovery

Treasures are found here: at the Deutsche Oper Berlin there are always operas on the schedule that are yet to be discovered.
