Opera Festival at the Berlin State Opera

Staatsoper Unter den Linden

Inside the Berlin State Opera (Staatsoper Unter den Linden)

The Festival Days at the Berlin State Opera present great music each year around the Easter holidays.

The Festtage ("festival days") at the Berlin State Opera are an opera festival created in 1996 by the opera's general music director Daniel Barenboim. Since its creation, the festival has offered outstanding musical theater and first-class concerts featuring international opera stars for an international audience. In addition to premieres, the festival also presents new stage adaptations of opera classics.

World Premiere by the Children's Orchestra

In addition to Wagner's "Ring of the Nibelung", Anton Bruckner's 8th Symphony will be heard on the occasion of his 200th birthday. The monumental work of the 19th century will be conducted by Zubin Mehta, the honorary conductor of the Staatskapelle Berlin. The Opera Children's Orchestra will also be part of the festival once again, playing music by Antonín Dvořák as well as a world premiere.
