Franz Schreker: Der Schatzgräber

Christof Loy has already twice helped unknown operas of the early 20th century to a successful comeback here: After Korngold's WUNDER DER HELIANE and Zandonai's FRANCESCA DA RIMINI, another long-forgotten opera treasure now follows: Franz Schreker's DER SCHATZGRÄBER. See and hear here audience voices after the premiere on 1 May 2022.

Deeply impressed we say: thank you!

In solidarity with the people of Ukraine

Our heartfelt thanks go to you, dear audience. Your contributions to fundraising at our performances as well as your ticket purchases for the benefit matinée on 13 March 2022 have so far resulted in around Euro 100.000.- which we have been able to transfer to the Ukraine Hilfe association. An overwhelming amount of donations of goods was also collected on the initiative of our orchestra on the second weekend in March: four van loads could be handed over directly at the Polish-Ukrainian border.

Bernhard Gander / Serhij Zhadan: Songs of Exile and No Return

"Do you hear the voices of all those who did not make it across the border? The voices of those left behind and discouraged? The angry voices of those who did not escape the trap, who were only a few metres short of rescue? How can you sleep now with these voices in your skull?" (From the libretto by the Ukrainian writer Serhij Zhadan)

DER SCHATZGRÄBER, from 1 May 2022

Marc Albrecht takes you for a walk through the Charlottenburg Palace park

I get my peace and quiet here. And I really need that downtime after all the travelling and poring over scores, because our prep work as conductors is very much brain-based, deskbound, drawing-board stuff. I’m isolating an opera’s structures and sound mixes, playing passages on the piano, and so on. The longer I spend on it, the more the music grows in richness and rubs off on me ... Marc Albrecht conducts Schreker's DER SCHATZGRÄBER.

Wagner: Tannhäuser und der Sängerkrieg auf Wartburg

The reputation of the Chorus of the Deutsche Oper Berlin as one of the world’s leading opera choruses is due in no small part to its contribution to Wagner’s great work of Romantic opera. Among the charming features of Kirsten Harms’s production is the contrast she draws between the gaudy mediaeval era and modern-day ascetism ...
