Staatsoper Unter den Linden

In December the Staatsoper Unter den Linden celebrates its 275th anniversary – with a concert on the day of the jubilee (7th December) followed by two opera premieres in the recently re-opened and extensively restored opera house. To commemorate this special date, a book will be published at the beginning of December by Carl Hanser Verlag in Munich: »These precious moments. 275 years of Staatsoper Unter den Linden«, which provides insight into the long and rich history of the opera house Unter den Linden.

By command of King Frederick II, the »Königliche Hofoper (Royal Court Opera)« was opened in a festive ceremony on 7th December 1742 with a performance of Carl Heinrich Graun’s gala opera »Cleopatra e Cesare«, which had been composed specifically for this purpose. At that time the Opera was the largest opera house in Europe and the first detached building of its kind. This day also marked the beginning of more than 250 years of successful cooperation of Staatsoper and Staatskapelle whose roots date back to the 16th century. 275 years later Staatsoper Unter den Linden looks back on a chequered and very eventful history, moulded by different political and artistic phases. The opera moving back into its traditional domicile Unter den Linden in this anniversary year after seven years of profound re-building and refurbishment marks a new chapter in this history.

The Staatsoper Unter den Linden has completely barrier-free access due to its excellent public transport connections. The underground car park on Bebelplatz offers disabled parking spaces and direct access to the opera house. On entering the car park between 18:00 and 23:59, the maximum parking fee is €6. To use this tariff, enter your parking ticket in one of the pay machines and the message »Theatertarif« will appear on the display. Press the button below and the reduced rate of €6 will be shown on the display. Please note that it is not possible to use the tariff if you enter the car park before 6p.m. so it will not be shown on the display.
