Contrary to the Staatsoper Unter den Linden which was founded in the eighteenth century in the centre of town and for a long time considered the Royal Opera, the history of the Berlin Opera began in 1912, in the Charlottenburg neighborhood situated outside the city limits, and intitiated by the rich bourgeoisie. But the inevitable occured, following the economic crisis of World War I, and the Charlottenburg Opera was ultimately purchased by the City of Berlin.

Bruno Walter greatly improved the musical qualities of this institution which was rebaptized the Städtische Oper (City Opera). Prior to that, Carl Ebert, as administrator (with Rudolf Bing, the future legendary director of the MET in New York, as assistant), promoted more modern music, including those operas by Kurt Weill or Schreker which Klemperer could no longer perform at the then-closed Kr oll-Oper, and which provoked the ire of the Nazis as early as 1933. In 1945, the building was left in ruins, but by the month of August 45, the company presented FIDELIO at the « Theater des Westerns » and animated that theatre until 1961. During this period, the conductor Ferenc Fricsay, named music director, enabled the Städtische Oper to regain its international ranking, alternating standard repertoire in top-quality productions (where voices such as Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau or Josef Greindl were discovered), works by Stravinsky and Hindemith (who were banned by the Nazis), and world premieres. But in 1955, the Opera Unter den Linden, situated in East Germany, reopened under the name of the Deutsche Staatsoper. Under the influence of this politico-artistic competition, three decisions were made : the Städtische Oper was rebaptized the Deutsche Oper Berlin, plans were made to construct a theatre at the Charlottenburg site (situated in West Berlin), and Carl Ebert who, in the mean­time founded the Glyndebourne Festival, was called back. His productions and season programmes turned West Berlin into one of contemporary opera's main capitals.

STORY
THE ENCHANTED FLUTE tells the love story of Prince Tamino and Pamina, daughter of the Queen of the Night. With the help of Papageno, a talkative but kindly cowardly bird-catcher, Tamino must rescue his beloved from the clutches of Sarastro, the high priest of Isis and Osiris. But appearances are deceptive, and the heroes will all have to undergo trials and tribulations before they find the truth.

Act 1
The young prince Tamino, lost on a journey, struggles with a giant snake before fainting. He is rescued by the Queen of the Night's three mysterious ladies, who disappear. When he wakes up, Papageno the bird-catcher, who was passing by, takes the credit. The three ladies return and punish Papageno. They give Tamino a portrait of Pamina, the daughter of the Queen of the Night, with whom he immediately falls in love. The Queen appears and asks the young prince to rescue her daughter from Sarastro, the high priest's prisoner. As a gift, he receives a flute with magical powers and Papageno, a carillon also endowed with powers.
Papageno is the first to arrive at Sarastro's castle, where he finds Pamina in the grip of the horrible Monostatos. Tamino, for his part, finds himself at the door of an officiant who tells him that the Queen of the Nights has tricked him. Pamina is being held for her own good. The two lovers are soon reunited.

Act 2
Accompanied by Papageno, Tamino must prove his worth by triumphing over several tests. Meanwhile, Pamina sees her mother appear, urging her to kill Sarastro. But Sarastro, with great wisdom, manages to dissuade and appease the young girl.
One of the tests requires Tamino to remain silent. Pamina, happy to find the one she loves, is distraught by his reaction and even considers committing the irreparable. As for Papageno, too talkative, he has failed, but he does not aspire to simple happiness. He is looking for his Papagena, who finally appears. All are reunited to pass the final test of fire and water, opening the gates to the temple of wisdom. The Queen of the Night, her ladies and Monostatos are swallowed up in the bowels of the earth. The final chorus salutes the victory of light over the world of darkness.
