In the location's words:

With 1,859 seats, the largest opera house in Berlin. Focus is care "great" repertoire of the 19th century with works by Richard Strauss, Richard Wagner, Giacomo Puccini, Giuseppe Verdi and Leoš Janáček. The choir of the Deutsche Oper Berlin under the direction of William Spaulding has been voted "Choir of the Year" three times in a row (2008, 2009, 2010). Dietmar Schwarz has been the Intendant since 2012, and Maestro Donald Runnicles has been the General Music Director since 2009! In Berlin-Charlottenburg, the opera house, which opened in 1912 and was destroyed during the war, reopened on September 24, 1961 as the Deutsche Oper Berlin. Since then, it has been Berlin's largest music theater - and one of the most modern in Europe. The straight-lined, elegant building designed by architect Fritz Bornemann offers 1,865 seats and guarantees optimum visibility and the best acoustics for every visitor. From the very beginning, the house on Bismarckstrasse was created for the large-scale opera repertoire of the 19th and early 20th centuries. Internationally renowned soloists, conductors and an excellent ensemble of singers, chorus and orchestra musicians as well as renowned stage directors ensure the house an outstanding position in the international music world. 112 world premieres in almost 100 years sustainably consolidated its reputation as a contemporary opera stage. Important leading conductors were, for example, Bruno Walter in the 1920s, Lorin Maazel in the 1960s and Christian Thielemann in the 1990s. The artistic director and stage director Götz Friedrich, a student of the legendary director Walter Felsenstein, had a significant and still noticeable influence on the stage from 1981 to 2000.
