In the location's words:

The Staatsoper Unter den Linden was founded in 1742 by Frederick the Great and built by Georg Wenzeslaus von Knobelsdorff in the heart of Berlin. In opera and concert, it is distinguished by its unique programming, which ranges from the Baroque to the central works of classical, romantic and modern literature to world premieres of contemporary composers. Personalities such as Richard Strauss, Erich Kleiber, Wilhelm Furtwängler, Otmar Suitner and Herbert von Karajan have decisively shaped the opera house Unter den Linden as one of the most traditional and artistically important stages in the world. General Music Director for over twenty years is Daniel Barenboim, who was elected by the Staatskapelle Berlin in 2000 as conductor for life. After completion of fundamental renovation measures - just in time for the 275th anniversary of the tradition-steeped house - the Lindenoper uniquely combines historic spatial dimensions with state-of-the-art technology and occupies a top position in Europe.
