  • »Take a seat«: Become a sponsor at Staatsoper Unter den Linden!

     

    Anticipation rises as the re-opening of our new and old opera house, the Staatsoper Unter den Linden, draws nearer! We are looking forward to returning to the historic site. To the moment when, for the first time, the curtain rises again. It will finally be happening in autumn 2017. But we invite you to take a seat now – by sponsoring one of the seats, which are authentic replicas of the originals, at Staatsoper Unter den Linden.

    You can find more information on the project at WWW.NEHMEN-SIE-PLATZ.DE.

    This is really a special opportunity: Thanks to the Staatsbibliothek zu Berlin, our members can experience the fascination of the autograph of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s opera »Die Zauberflöte« which usually lies safely in a vault. Dr. Roland Schmidt-Hensel, curator of the collection of Mozart, will present to you this extraordinary treasure for all music lovers. Furthermore we cast a glance into the impressive new reading room which was created in the course of the renovation and refurbishment of the building.

     

  • 28 - 30 June 2017 | Trip to Hamburg’s Elbphilharmonie

    Music lovers from all over the world are excitedly looking forward to the opening of the Elbphilharmonie. The Staatskapelle Berlin with its Maestro Daniel Barenboim also belongs to those top-class orchestras invited to give a concert during the opening season. We have reserved tickets for their program with works by Wagner and Bruckner and would be happy if you would like to go on the journey with us! The impressive building surrounded by water not only houses two concert halls, but also an exclusive 5*-hotel in which we will stay. On the day of our arrival, we will visit Puccini’s »Madama Butterfly« in the staging of Vincent Boussard and with costumes by Christian Lacroix and will also have a look behind the scenes of Hamburg’s Staatsoper.
