Seven new shows at Deutsche Oper Berlin

The new season, rolled out yesterday, includes Zemlinsky’s The Dwarf, Ambroise Thomas’s Hamlet’s and something very German by Glanert. Pretty Yende gets to do the Sonnambula walk inn her nightie.

Seven new productions is about average for a major opera house in 2019.

The Met can afford just four.


  • David Hilton says:

    Seven new productions is average? I’d wager there has never been a year in which London’s Royal Opera has produced as many as seven genuinely new productions. Two or three seems more like the average here. And in most places.

  • Andrew John Laptew says:

    I am having great difficulty booking seats online for Deutsche Oper Berlin. The dates I desire are from 27 October 2018 to 1 November 2018. I have tried the web sites listed for Deutsche Oper but when I try and select the relevant dates the system will not cooperate and bring up the appropriate page for the date and desired opera. Can you assist please?
