Staatsoper für alle
06 September 2020
Staatsoper für alle is a cultural highlight of the Berlin summer calendar. The open air classical concert under the baton of Daniel Barenboim is open to everyone - and free of charge.
Staatsoper für alle ("State Opera for Everyone") is the name of an annual classical concert under the baton of Daniel Barenboim in the heart of Berlin. For one day, the award-winning orchestra of the State Opera Berlin assembles on a temporary stage at Bebelplatz in Berlin-Mitte to play a number of pieces. The concert is very popular among Berliners and tourists - and completely free of charge.
Classical music in a casual atmosphere
To ensure good acoustics and create an intimate, occasion-appropriate atmosphere, Bebelplatz and sections of the boulevard Unter den Linden are closed for traffic for the time of the concert. Visitors may bring collapsible chairs, blankets, picnic hampers and beverages to the concert area.
Programme of Staatsoper für alle 2020
There will be a lot of Beethoven on the 2020 programme. The Piano Concerto No. 2 in B flat major and the 9th Symphony in D minor will be performed. Daniel Barenboim conducts both performances and leads star pianist Lang Lang on the piano as well as the Staatskapelle Berlin and the Staatsoper Chorus through the monumental 9th symphony.
Limited space capacity due to the Corona pandemic
This year the space available at Bebelplatz is limited due to the corona crisis. Around 2,000 people can take part in this popular event. For this reason it is necessary to book a free ticket. As a special thanks, the concert 2020 is dedicated to all people in systemically relevant professional fields. A contingent of tickets is available in advance for this group of people. The remaining tickets can be booked on the website of the Staatsoper from 20 August 2020.
