Ladies and Gentlemen, dear visitors!

On 22nd April, the new directive issued by the State of Berlin prohibiting large public events due to the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic takes effect. As a result no events, regardless of size, will be taking place at the Deutsche Oper Berlin until after 31st July 2020.


This means that our 2019/20 season has come to an untimely end. We are sincerely grateful for your support and have treasured our shared experiences of fine musical theatre over recent months. We hope to see you again soon. Dietmar Schwarz: “I join the entire Deutsche Oper Berlin team in expressing deep regret over the cancellation of our May and June events, which were to include the hotly anticipated launch of our RING OF THE NIBELUNG cycle, conducted and directed by our formidable duo, Donald Runnicles and Stefan Herheim, and the premieres of Rued Langgaard’s ANTIKRIST and Peter I. Tchaikovsky’s THE QUEEN OF SPADES, which were cancelled on 12th and 25th March. We sincerely hope to soon be in a position to present all the works that we have been planning and preparing over these weeks and months. We are firm believers that art will be all the more important to us as human beings during, and above all after, this difficult period – both as a way of making sense of what we have been through and of shaping our outlook for the future.”


We will notify you as soon as we can of our plans for the 2020/21 season, modified to take account of the current situation, our digital offerings on the website and the new date for advance ticket sales.


We miss you all and are extremely sad about the demise of our intensively rehearsed and eagerly awaited performances, some of which have been in the pipeline for 2 years. We look forward to seeing you again at your (and our) Deutsche Oper Berlin!

Open Opera: Das Rheingold on the parking deck


On 12 June at 7.30 pm, we invite you to a semi-staged 110-minute version of the work on the parking deck of the Deutsche Oper Berlin, based on a chamber version by the British composer Jonathan Dove with 22 musicians* and 12 singers*. The musical direction is in the hands of General Music Director Donald Runnicles, while Neil Barry Moss is responsible for the scenic arrangement.

The performances follow a "pay what you want" concept, i.e. to secure seats you are invited to book one or two seats online, by telephone or at the box office for a nominal charge of 5.00 €. Contributions are requested after the performance.


We are looking forward to welcoming you under the open sky, but live again!



About this version

Celebrated by the British press as a "wonder" and a "masterpiece of replication", British composer Jonathan Dove composed the work titled The Ring Saga in 1990 on the basis of DER RING DES NIBELUNGEN (Adaptation of DAS RHEINGOLD by Graham Vick and Jonathan Dove, orchestration by Jonathan Dove, by arrangement with Birmingham Opera Company). Created with the goal of making Wagner's tetralogy performable at smaller venues and festivals, this version – ten hours in length and with an orchestra of 18 musicians – has since taken the world by storm.

Announcing: the calendar for August and September.


Following an extended period of enforced inactivity, we are delighted to present our new programme for the period of time from 14 August to 26 September. In our current mode of “Open Opera” we are taking our first cautious steps in the direction of business as usual, serving up works encompassing Wagner, Verdi, Beethoven and jazz, in semi-staged or concertante form and featuring top international stars.

In August our elevated parking deck becomes the strange and wondrous setting for three performances and four concerts, prior to the reopening in September of the main stage. Regretfully, we reserve the right to make any changes to the programme dictated by current circumstances.

Tickets for August events go on sale at noon on Monday 22nd June 12:00h. We expect ticket bookings for September to open on 17th August.

It goes without saying that all events will be held in strict compliance with the hygiene and distancing regulations in force on the day. This will allow all of us to enjoy evenings at the opera almost as much as we always have and to feel safe in the process.


We can’t wait to resume. Have a nice summer!


Das Rheingold on the parking deck

The Rhinegold in just 110 minutes? Yes, it can be done! Following on from the performances in June, which were sold out in short order, we present this semi-staged adaptation of the first part of the tetralogy, referred to by Wagner as the ‘preliminary evening’, here in Jonathan Dove’s chamber-music version – a very effective dramatic distillation featuring 12 soloists from the ensemble singing in the open air and with Donald Runnicles conducting.

21, 22, 23 August 2020


The BigBand on the parking deck

Like no other jazz composer before or after him, Duke Ellington was capable of capturing non-musical images and conjuring moods and atmospheres. >>> With its “Jungle Book” concert, the BigBand demonstrates convincingly that jazz music is for children, too. Actor Christian Brückner reads excerpts from Rudyard Kipling’s classic, with the Band playing jungle jazz.

Baby Doll. Klezmer meets Beethoven

We are ringing in Beethoven’s extended anniversary year 2020/21 with a special encounter: Beethoven’s Symphony No. 7 meets real-life stories of refugee women. BABY DOLL is an evening located in the borderlands between symphony concert and klezmer session, between dance, documentary theatre and video installation. We are looking forward to the German premiere of Marie-Ève Signeyrole’s production. The director attracted attention in Germany when being nominated for the FAUST Prize 2019.

Masterpieces of Italian opera

In September we’re back on the main stage at last, enhancing six of your late-summer evenings with concertante performances of excerpts from masterpieces of Italian opera. 90 minutes of love and hate, hope and despair, featuring such top-notch singers as Amartuvshin Enkhbat, Saioa Hernández, Elena Stikhina, Jorge de León, Joseph Calleja and Irina Churilova.

1:1 Concerts... By distance! ...The smallest concert format.

1 Musician, 1 listener, 2 meters distance - the 1:1 CONCERTS defy the corona crisis, create artistic places of power and raise donations for the solidarity support of musicians in need.




Cultural life has almost come to a complete standstill as it has vanished behind digital screens. More than ever, people are in need of genuine personal contact and a commonly and directly shared musical experience, yet the current limitations are likely to stay with us for a long time. With 1:1 CONCERTS we have now created an opportunity for an authentic concert experience that is takes into account all of the current Covid-19 restrictions.

A 1:1 CONCERT features a 10 min. non-verbal 1-to-1-encounter between a listener and a musician. The opening eye contact and ensuing mutual gaze is the impulse for a very personal concert where both sides experience an unprecedented intensity allowing proximity from a distance. The concert attendees do not know who is going to play. Whether they hear a jazz saxophone, a double bass or a baroque flute will come as a surprise. Moreover, the concept explores extraordinary concert venues – concerts can take you to an art gallery, a qiuet backyard, an empty factory hall or an allotment garden. Spaces and venues are provided by private hosts.

This week, Berlin is starting a series of performances at various venues in cooperation with musicians from the Deutsche Oper Berlin Orchestra and other musicians. You will find available dates in the next few days under the link below.

Donations in favour of project work of the Junge Deutsche Oper for children and young people during the holidays

Young talent is important to us. In the holiday and leisure programmes of the Young Opera, children and young people meet with professional musicians and theatre makers. They invent their own music, build stage sets and write scenes. We give children and young people a space to express themselves, to discover and develop their artistic talents. At the same time they enrich us by contributing their themes and perspectives, by teaching us to see opera with new eyes again and again. You can support this work by donating to the Young Opera's project work for children and young people during the holidays.

Viral infections – Hygiene works!


If you need to cough or sneeze, use a tissue or the crook of your arm – if you use a tissue, make sure you dispose of your used tissue in a bin with a lid.

Keep your hands away from your face – avoid touching your mouth, eyes or nose with your hands.

Keep your distance from people who are coughing, sniffling or who have a fever – including those suffering from seasonal cold and flu illnesses.

Avoid touching (e.g. shaking hands or hugs) when you greet other people or say goodbye.

Wash your hands regularly and properly (at least 20 seconds) with soap and water – especially after blowing your nose, sneezing or coughing.
