Patrons (Förderkreis):
Dear friends of opera!
The Society of Friends and Patrons of the Deutsche Oper Berlin have been providing active, committed and enthusiastic support to Berlin’s largest opera house since 1982. We are a group of people who have a close emotional attachment to the institution. The Deutsche Oper Berlin is known for the calibre and quality of its ensemble and artists, the fine acoustics and its excellent views of the stage from all corners of the auditorium – and we want to raise the public profile of these attributes. Our activities also include helping the ensemble to realise special artistic visions. Would you like to get involved? Please ask about the benefits associated with being a Society member. We will happily tailor an individual package to your requirements. We look forward to hearing from you!
Sincerely, André Schmitz,
Chairman of Förderkreis der Deutschen Oper Berlin e.V.


A great result!
In a spectacular auction Dr. Kilian Jay von Seldeneck succeeded in coaxing our members to follow the bidding all the way and pay large sums for delights such as a role as an extra in DIE FLEDERMAUS or a reading with Margot Friedländer. The proceeds of the evening enabled the Society to spend over €65,000 on a new double bass.

Journey to Israel

We will be travelling again this year: Destination this time is Israel. The Deutsche Oper Berlin and The Israeli Oper Tel Aviv have traditionally had a very close relationship. In the recent past we have lent productions to Tel Aviv several times - for example DER BARBIER VON SEVILLA and we are currently preparing the next cooperations. Reason for us to travel there once. The director of the opera in Tel Aviv, Zach Granit, is looking forward to welcoming us personally.
