At Festtage Berlin international opera stars and the state orchestra "Staatskapelle Berlin" come together and turn the Staatsoper into a special venue with just the right atmosphere for classical music.

Programme of Festtage Berlin 2019

Two musical comedies from the nineteenth and twentieth centuries were at the heart of the Festtage 2019: Richard Wag­ner's "Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg" and Sergei Prokofiev's rarely performed com­edy of love and errors "Betrothal in a Monastery". The Vienna Philharmonic performed Mahl­er’s Symphony No. 1 as well as Prokofiev's "Symphonie classique". Together with the Staatskapelle Berlin, Anna Ne­trebko presented opera arias by Giuseppe Verdi, flanked by his "Quattro pezzi sacri" with the Rundfunkchor Ber­lin. And the newly founded opera chil­dren's orchestra made its debut with Prokofiev's "Peter and the Wolf". Daniel Barenboim directed both operas as well as the concert programme.
