While not huge Wagner fans, our group went to see the new production of Siegfried at the Staatsoper. Five and a half hours later, we were all thrilled and surprised at how much we liked it. This is part of The Ring cycle that they are doing together with La Scala in Milan. The singing was outstanding as was the orchestra. The production itself was a combination of modern (video enhancements) and classical (beautiful, fanciful costumes worthy of the story). I bought the tickets on line well in advance and found opera to be less expensive in Berlin than in New York. Highly recommend a visit to the opera (regardless of what they are performing) if you find yourself in Berlin.
