The reopening of the Staatsoper Unter den Linden after seven years of renovation is solemnized with a “Prelude” starting on September 30th. Its kick-off will be celebrated with the “Ode to Joy”: Beethoven’s 9th Symphony with a first-rate cast will be played in an open-air concert at the Bebelplatz. Surrounded by the Staatsoper, Humboldt University and Hotel de Rome, and bordered by Unter den Linden, there is no other location in Berlin that is as central – in both geographic and cultural terms – as Bebelplatz. For more than a decade now, it has been the venue for a free, open-air symphony concert by the Staatskapelle and Daniel Barenboim. This time they are joined by the Staatsopernchor and a quartet of supreme singers: Diana Damrau, Okka von der Damerau, Burkhard Fritz and René Pape. After the concert and in celebration of the special occasion there will be projections onto the Staatsoper building showing the 275-year history of the opera house.
