  • 02 - 05 July 2014 | Members’ trip to the concert of the Staatskapelle Berlin in Paris

    Saint-Sulpice, Champs-Élysées, Montmartre, Opéra Garnier, the »savoir vivre à la française« as well as the fascinating Eiffel Tower: The summer in Paris is seductive. This is especially true when the Staatskapelle Berlin and Daniel Barenboim make a concert at the Salle Pleyel. Their summer tour gives us the perfect opportunity to travel to the Seine and spend days full of music in on this beautiful city.
  • Apollini – Little Friends

    Scent the air of the stage, blink into the flies’ blazing spotlights, or even cast a glance into the prima donna’s wardrobe – we want to awaken children’s enjoyment of opera and the passion for the magic of music!

    The APOLLINI-program addresses children and grandchildren (and of course also nieces, nephews and godchildren) of Friends and Sponsors of the Staatsoper Berlin. The amicable relations of the members will thus reach out to more and more people.

    Together with even-aged children, the APOLLINI will get to know music and the magic of opera by their »mini membership«. They can get an insight behind the scenes and try many things by themselves.
    There are three trimesters per year, during which workshops take place every 14 days – of course not during the school holidays in Berlin and during theatre holidays.

    By the way: The mini membership and its programs are a great gift for birthdays etc.
    Apply soon and inspire your friends.

    The APOLLINI-programme is theatre pedagogically developed and accomplished by the »Junge Staatsoper«.

    The third trimester will take place from 12 May 2014 to 2 June 2014.
