I attended the opera Faust with the wonderful tenor Pavol Breslik in this theater on December 10. I was surprised by how small the theater is. I liked that - it was very intimate. I was sitting in the front row and there you have a lot of space! You can really stretch your legs. The garderobe was free, staff... More

Went with a colleague who bought tickets for the Die Zauberflöte. Great opera and artists. The theatre itself is not as grand as one could hope with such a great scenography . Nonetheless a great experience.

Been to the Berlin Opera's performance (Berlin opera is under reconstruction now). Opera was great, the performance, the voices - all was really enjoyable. Cant tell the same about the public - non stop blowing noses, coughs, etc Why people so sick decided to attend an opera is a mystery for me - so much lack of respect for others...... More

If only all theatres were like this: I sat at the back of the balcony and still felt close to the stage and could hear everything perfectly. Great place, and you can order interval drinks too: and pretzels- recommended!

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.

I loved the music - three totally different pieces of music. Great experience at affordable price , very good unexpencive seats.

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

Staying in Charlottenburg

Neighborhood Profile
Breathe in Berlin’s royal past while walking through the gardens of beautiful Charlottenburg Palace, which lends its name to this well-heeled neighborhood. Here you'll find some of the oldest homes in the city: upper-class apartment buildings with ornate facades and marble-floored foyers line the cobblestone streets. Stroll by sophisticated restaurants, through little parks, or around Lake Lietzensee. Window shop down Kurfürstendamm, the most renowned high-end shopping street in Berlin, where you can find all the big designer names. In the evening, visit one of the old theaters close by Zoo Station which were nightlife hot spots in the 1920s, or dine in one of the many international restaurants around Savignyplatz before heading to other parts of town for a night out.
