Season 2021/22:

Dear audience members, the re-opening of the Deutsche Oper on 24th September 1961 was more than simply an important event in the cultural landscape of Germany. The inauguration of Fritz Bornemann’s building was not only a testament to the tenacity and resilience of West Berlin; as an example of »democratic« architecture, the structure itself was also a statement about the character of the city, the façade representing both a protective haven for the arts and a welcoming transparency for the opera-going public and the auditorium affording each of the 1,865 seats an unimpeded view of the stage. To mark the 60th anniversary of the venue’s resurrection we are shining a spotlight on Fritz Bornemann’s edifice – partly because we love the place, partly because we have once again reached a point where we need to rethink what we want from art and what it can give us. To this end we have put together a mixed programme of events that reflect the ties between musical theatre, visual arts and architecture. —



All performances from 1 November to 9 July

The Tischlerei programme
Always on the pulse of our time
The Tischlerei is a laboratory for musical theatre of our times, a blank slate for experimenting with new sounds and current issues, contemporary forms and changing perspectives. This season’s productions look at female realities, question the transcendental power of theatre and illustrate the insurmountable frontlines and human cost of war.

An essay by Arne Stollberg
The Composer in the Mirror
"You must separate the person from the work." This admonishment by the count to his sister the countess in Richard Strauss' CAPRICCIO can hardly be contested as a hermeneutical principle. Even Walter Benjamin insisted on treating "works" not simply as "testimonials", thereby undermining their aesthetic obstinacy. Yet in the case of Alexander Zemlinsky's DER ZWERG, things are more complicated ...

7 performances for visually impaired audiences
Audiodeskription 2021/22
Turning a performance into a real theatre experience for blind and visually impaired people is the aim of the "Berliner Spielplan Audiodeskription". In the past 18 months, live audio description was not possible - we presented JENUFA and DER ZWERG in two DVD streamings with their own soundtrack and audio-descriptive introductions. We are all the more delighted to be able to perform live for visually impaired audiences: DIE ZAUBERFLÖTE and IL VIAGGIO A REIMS.
