The typical 1950s Berlin Deutsche Oper building is home to one of the largest international opera institutions. With a rich and daring program, with the Staatsoper unter den Linden it offers a wide choice of ballets, operas and concerts that puts Berlin at the top of music lovers' destinations. Donald Runnicles, the musical director of the Deutsche Oper has programmed a season 2019-2020 with many events that must be booked without delay.
To witness, for example, the victory of Sondra Radvanovsky in Aida, her greatest role but also in Lisa in The Queen of Spades of Tchaikovsky, you should buy your opera tickets as soon as possible. Anja Harteros, another exceptional soprano in the role of Tosca, faces the immense Ludovic Tézier in the role of Scarpia. Anja Harteros is also performing in Andrea Chénier "La mamma morta". Is it worth mentioning Anna Netrebko and Yusif Eyvazov in Adriana Lecouvreur? Yes, because the show may display full soon.
The great names of the opera art mingle cheerfully with the singers of the company of impeccable quality. For fans who like to spot the young talents of tomorrow, we strongly recommend a performance of Mozart's Die Zauberflöte with the pretty soprano Siobhan Stagg, the tenors Matthew Newlin or Attilio Glaser for example.
There is so much to see at Berlin's Deutsche Oper. For some years, Roberto Alagna has been saving some of his appearances to the faithful audience of the theater. This season, he performs in the operatic double I Pagliacci and Cavalleria Rusticana, alongside Eva-Maria Westbroek and Aleksandra Kurzak, splendid sopranos. Another great tenor, Klaus Florian Vogt is also a regular on the scene. He offers a true Wagner festival by performing Tannhäuser and Parsifal while Stephen Gould is Tristan facing the unique Isolde of Nina Stemme (also starring in Puccini's Tosca this season) alternating with the superb Wagnerian Irena Theorin. The extraordinary baritone Michael Volle plays Der fliegende Holländer (The Flying Dutchman) while Simon Keenlyside is Amfortas in Parsifal. The German composer is admirably served in Berlin with a new Rheingold directed by conductor Donald Runnicles.
