On September 6th, STAATSOPER FÜR ALLE will take place on Bebelplatz.

Due to the current security regulations we unfortunately had to limit the concert to a seating capacity of about 2,000 people this time. Therefore, access is only possible with a ticket, thanks to BMW Berlin free of charge as always, and they were sold out in minutes! With this concert, we and our Partner BMW would like to especially thank people who, through their work in system-relevant areas such as health care, retails and logistics, support our society to a great extent. We are very much looking forward to welcoming many of them to STAATSOPER FÜR ALLE – through an extra ticket contingent that was provided to them in advance.‬

‪The program, under the musical direction of Daniel Barenboim, is all about Ludwig van Beethoven – in addition to Beethoven’s Romances for Violin No. 1 and 2 with Anne-Sophie Mutter as soloist, the “Egmont” Overture and the 9th Symphony, the “Ode to Joy”, will be performed, with Julia Kleiter, Waltraud Meier, Andreas Schager, René Pape and the Staatsopernchor.‬ ‪Those who did not get a free ticket have the opportunity to watch the concert on livestream.
