About Berlin Staatsoper im Schiller Theatre

Berlin Staatsoper im Schiller Theatre Logo
Experiencing a performance at the former Königliche Hofoper not only means enjoying the traditionally excellent conducting and ensemble, but also a visit to one of the world's most beautiful opera houses. The Enchanted Castle was commissioned by Frederick II from his friend the architect Georg Wenzeslaus von Knobelsdorff. Construction began in July 1741 on what was intended to be the first part of a Forum Fredericianum. A full ten months before its actual completion the monarch's impatience precipitated the opening of the Hofoper with a performance of Carl Heinrich Graun's Cleopatra e Cesare on 7 December 1742. This event marked the beginning of the successful 250-year-old cooperation between the Staatsoper and Staatskapelle.

Towards the end of the 19th century the opera house attained international fame through conductors such as Joseph Sucher, Felix von Weingartner and Karl Muck, and in later years Richard Strauss and Leo Blech. After the collapse of the German Empire in 1918 the opera was renamed the Staatsoper unter den Linden and the Königliche Kapelle became the Staatskapelle Berlin. The 1920s saw Wilhelm Furtwängler, Erich Kleiber, Otto Klemperer, Alexander von Zemlinsky, Bruno Walter and many others at the conductor's stand.

In April 1928, having undergone a complete renovation with the introduction of a rotating stage, trap room and wings, the Lindenoper reopened with a new production of the Magic Flut. In the same year Feodor Chaliapin and the Diaghilev Ballet gave guest performances under Ernest Ansermet.

During World War II the opera house was twice completely destroyed by bombing. Rebuilding was quick the first time, but the second took much longer. Both times, 1942 and 1955, the Deutsche Staatsoper Berlin, as it was renamed in 1945, opened with Wagner's Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg.

Despite the building of the Berlin Wall in 1961 and the restrictions that followed, the Staatsoper managed to retain its international reputation under its artistic directors Hans Pischner and Günter Rimkus, building up an extensive classical and romantic repertoire together with contemporary ballets and operas. The series of first performances continued with Paul Dessau's Das Verhör des Lukullus (1951), Einstein (1974) and Leonce und Lena (1979), to name a few.

Since reunification the Lindenoper has become firmly established in the musical life of Berlin and once again ranks among the world's leading opera houses. New priorities were set under the directorship of Georg Quander. A Berlin dramaturgy rediscoverd and reassessed important works from the past. Baroque opera took on particular importance with Cleopatra e Cesare, Croesus, L'opera Seria and Griselda under René Jacobs with the Akademie für Alte Musik Berlin and the Freiburger Barockorchester on historical instruments.

Another musician of long-standing international experience joined the Lindenoper when Daniel Barenboim was appointed artistic director and general music director in 1992. Autumn 2000 saw him elected as lifetime chief conductor by the Staatskapelle Berlin, with which he performed the complete cycle of Beethoven's symphonies and piano concertos (as conductor and soloist). During the 2002 Festtage he also presented the ten-part Wagner cycle, produced in collaboration with Harry Kupfer between 1992 and 2002.

The Staatsoper Unter den Linden continues its unique programme of concerts and operas, which ranges from Baroque operas in historical performance practice to the central works of the classical, romantic and modern opera literature to the realisation of premieres by contemporary composers. The performances are of the highest musical quality, something guaranteed by the presence of Daniel Barenboim as the general music director and by renowned guest conductors, a house ensemble of first-rate singers augmented by internationally known stars, and, not least, by the Berlin Staatskapelle. The productions reflect a commitment to these works from a modern perspective; they challenge conventional viewing habits, while remaining true to the spirit of the work.

On 19 September 2010 the Staatsoper ensemble and members as well as the Staatskapelle Berlin moved into the Schiller Theater on Bismarckstreet in Berlin-Charlottenburg. During the time of renovation of the venue Unter den Linden, the Schiller Theater serves as the new venue and was opened to the public on 3 October 2010 with a world premiere, exactly 17 years after operation was dicontinued.
