We saw the Barber of Seville. As this is in italian they had german subtitles above the stage. My german is patchy so we basically ready the english synopsis and tried to follow the plot while listening to the beautiful singing.

Small-ish and intimate place for Staatsoper Berlin and Staatskapelle Berlin with Daniel Barenboim. Worth to visit, check for good productions. Pity no solution for English surtitles yet

It is a relatively small but nice operatheater temperaly housing Staatsoper. The architecture is worth noticing. The performances of Staatoper are often high quality - I saw a very fine Tosca - May 24. It is certainly worth a visit.

We saw three modern choreographies by Duato,Forsythe and Goecke in one performance. The ballet was magnificent and dancers absolutely high class. I loved the music - three totally different pieces of music. Great experience at affordable price , very good unexpencive seats. I will never miss any ballet performance in Berlin when I visit this friendly city again. it is... More

This theatre also hosts ballet from Staatsoper while it is under reconstruction. We saw Eifmans (20 years old) psycological ballet about the life of T. It was very repetitive and the music at some stages weren't connected convincingly with the steps. The theatre offers a fine view also from the less expensive seats.

We saw Tschaikowski, a ballet of Boris Eifman, describing the struggle of life and death of the great composer. The ballet performance was excellent. It touches deep and emotions are visible in every movement of the dancers. A must to see. We also liked the theatre, relatively small, nice staff, and it looks as if the sun shines 24 hours... More

This where you have to go if you want the experience of the Berlin Staatsoper. Their true home on Unter den Linen is now a hopeless rubble with ever extending dates of completion for the renovation that is taking place. The Schiller theatre was built in the 1950s and reflects the style of that time. It is attractive and has... More

With just over 1000 seats, this is a relatively small opera house for a world capital. Orchestra, chorus, soloists, and conducting first class when I attended during the recent festival Ring Cycle. Seat numbering in the center section of the Orchestra level is a bit confusing, starting at 1 on both the left and right sides and increasing toward the... More

If you like opera don't miss to go to Schiller Theatre. This is a temporary location for the Staatsoper. A real value: orchestra,singers and the whole production are of a very high level. Schiller theatre is little but beautiful: visibility is very good and acoustics are quite perfect. Public is disciplinated: they don't make noise during the performance and wait... More

Daniel Barenboim conducted Wagner's Tristan und Isolde. The Berlin Staatsoper house is under renovation, so they used the Schiller Theatre. I expected this theatre to be too compact for Wagner, but in fact I was so much overwhelmed by the performance! I have seen Barenboim three times before. The first concert was his recital. The second and the third concerts... More
