  • »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.

  • Thanks to our American Friends!

     

    It was nice that the American Friends visited this year's FESTTAGE at the Staatsoper Berlin. They gave Jürgen Flimm and Matthias Schulz a special souvenir: a check over 100,000 dollars! Thank you very much for this extraordinary commitment. With these donations, the Staatsoper is able to finance a part of the costs for the English surtitles in the opera house Unter den Linden as well as productions of the International Opera Studios.
