Dear patrons,
A new piece of musical theatre by Chaya Czernowin is bound to be a special, not to say surprising, experience: 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. We proudly present a top-notch cast of artists: Patrizia Ciofi and Dietrich Henschel, two of the biggest names on the opera circuit, the “Ensemble Nikel”, currently on international tour, and three vocal artists working with Neue Musik, Noa Frenkel, Terry Wey and Frauke Aulbert: all are thrown together in this extraordinary premiere. We look forward to seeing you!

Chaya Czernowin ... A place of serenity for my soul
There is arguably no modern-day composer possessed of a more heightened sensibility than Chaya Czernowin. The smallest of details fall under her analytical gaze, a gaze that pervades her music, too. We visited her at home in Harvard, USA

Chaya Czernowin presents: “Love is …”
Three weeks before the premiere Chaya Czernowin hosts a matinee event to explore love as portrayed in the art of different periods. She will present a very personal selection of songs and lyrics that trace an arc from Baroque to the modern era. With Noa Frenkel (photo) a. o.

World premiere on 15. November; 21., 26., 30. November; 6. December 2019
Heart Chamber
Chaya Czernowin's premieres in musical theatre have always been celebrated as special events: both PNIMA ... INS INNERE in 2000 and INFINITE NOW 17 years later were named "Premieres of the Year" by critics for the publication “Opernwelt”. A frequent congenial partner through all this has been director Claus Guth who, after PNIMA and ZAIDE/ADAMA which premiered at the Salzburger Festspiele in 2005, is now staging a new work by Chaya Czernowin for the third time with HEART CHAMBER.

»A stolen glance, a fleeting word, an unusual reaction: they trigger quakes and tremors in the interior landscapes of the two lovers.«

Spotlight on female composers – on 28 October 2019
Chamber Music: Feminae
Where are the women in the history of composition? And who are they? Very few have ventured into this male-dominated territory, and to this day most female composers have barely been heard of. In the first Chamber Music concert of the season musicians of the orchestra and soloist Annika Schlicht (photo) present their personal favourites and the works associated with them.

Symposium
The Deutsche Oper Berlin is a key venue for New Musical Theatre. Since 2015 the main stage has hosted annual world premieres and since its inauguration the Tischlerei has only ever been a platform for contemporary works. Reason enough to dedicate our annual symposium, coinciding with the world premiere of Czernowin’s HEART CHAMBER, to identifying locations that showcase New Musical Theatre.

Almost there: Opera Lecture
With not long to go before the premiere, the final rehearsals are taking place on the fully decked-out main stage and finishing touches are being put to the production. The Opera Lecture hosted in collaboration with Theatergemeinde Berlin e.V. offers a glimpse into this final, intensive phase of preparations, with the public invited to sit in on a rehearsal and converse with the artists afterwards.
