Arias and Ensembles from works by Giuseppe Verdi and Richard Wagner
It is remarkable, but also significant, that the two greatest opera composers of the 19th century never personally met: although the works of Giuseppe Verdi and Richard Wagner dominated the world's opera stages from 1850 onward, both composers notably evaded noting or even trying to directly contact one another. Their ideas of musical theatre, perfected over decades, were too different. On one side was Verdi's radical focus on elementary and human drives that trigger fateful events when they collide. On the other side was Wagner's devotion to myth and characters as the holders of ideas that are greater than the characters themselves. Yet this contrast also allows for a stimulating direct comparison: the Verdi-Wagner Gala by the Deutsche Oper Berlin will examine what separates – or even unites – these two composers.

Within our opera house it is mandatory to wear a mouth and nose cover. The obligation to wear a mouth-nose cover also applies to your seat, so that even if the minimum distance between seats is slightly reduced, the necessary protection against infection is maintained.
During the performances, there will again be interval catering - naturally within the rules of hygiene, distance and infection protection: You can enjoy your orders at restaurant tables and bar tables in the foyers. We recommend that you reserve your seats in advance of your visit. The catering team looks forward to your reservation at www.rdo-berlin.de or by telephone +49 (0)30 343 84 670, please pay in advance.
