Saw Nabucco here, just fab, great to see such a big chorus and the orchestra so melodic. I try to take advantage of trips to places like this to see such performances. Excellent value, €30 with an excellent seat and sur-titles in English and German so managed to pick up a bit of German too.

We were in Berlin for a weekend and decided to take the maximum out of the opera, so we visited 2 performances. Very different but both were excellent. Price/quality ratio great compare to London, Wien or La Scala. We will be back!

As the State Opera is in the middle of extensive refurbishment, we came here instead. The building itself is stark concrete and resembles a cattle market rather than an arts centre. Nonetheless, the interior is a great improvement and the acoustics are good. Our first visit was for Aida and was a modern version, not all of which was to... More

We went to see a performance of Verdi's Aida and it was amazing! Very originally done with surprise elements such as the choir actually sitting in the audience. The opera building is conveniently located right next to the metro station and it has decently priced drinks and snacks. The orchestra and the cast was really amazing!!

We saw an excellent production of Tosca, sung in Italian with German and English surtitles. The orchestra and cast were superb. We found in December the theatre was over-heated, much more then the Berlin Philharmonie and the Konzerthaus. We bought our tickets on the internet well in advance.

I've been there to watch the Rigoletto in an amazing contemporary scenic design. The hall is spacious yet cozy (perhaps just a little old-style) and the acoustic is incredible from any position. At the foyer there was live music performed by a string quintet before the opening of the show. I got a 10€ ticket using my ClassicCard (great opportunity... More

We saw an awful production of Mozart's "Abduction from the Seraglio." Singing and orchestra were good, but there was a big disconnect between the wonderful music and what was going on on stage. Acoustics were awful. It seemed that the singers were miked (perhaps only for the dialogue), but this milking was poor. I do trust that more traditional productions... More

I love this opera house, and it's not just because it has its own U-Bahn station on the U2 line. The staff are always so welcoming, the production values are high and they attract some of the very best talent. The house orchestra and chorus are no slouches either. In an economy drive I elected to buy a cheaper ticket... More

The most important advantage of this Oper was its accessibility. The procedure of ticketing was excellent with many offers for any social status. After you choose a top place you can feel that you are on the stage like performers! Besides, The lateral activities was superb and you can find lots of fantastic cultural facilities there.

Staying in Charlottenburg

Neighbourhood Profile
Breathe in Berlin’s royal past while walking through the gardens of beautiful Charlottenburg Palace, which lends its name to this well-heeled neighbourhood. Here you'll find some of the oldest homes in the city: upper-class apartment buildings with ornate facades and marble-floored foyers line the cobblestone streets. Stroll by sophisticated restaurants, through little parks, or around Lake Lietzensee. Window shop down Kurfürstendamm, the most renowned high-end shopping street in Berlin, where you can find all the big designer names. In the evening, visit one of the old theatres close by Zoo Station which were nightlife hot spots in the 1920s, or dine in one of the many international restaurants around Savignyplatz before heading to other parts of town for a night out.
