Address
Neighborhood: Charlottenburg
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.

We went to see the Staatsoper perform Mozarts Magic Flute last week. Excellent performance, fine singers, good orchestra. Ticket prices did not 'break the bank'. Schiller Theatre - probably built in the 50's has comfy seats and a steep rake so you can see well. The upstairs foyer is large and the interval 'drinks' were easy to get without a long queue. All together a very enjoyable evening at a great venue.

It felt like I was watching an opera with high quality that knew a bit too well that they were among the best in the world to perform the opera. I watched Fidelio by Beethoven, and it was excellent due to perfection, technique etc. Some of the singers are among the highest profiled singers in their genre, and still, the orchestra and the choir made the greatest impression on me this evening. What a marvellous foundation the Staatsoper in Berlin has with its orchestra and choir. Go and explore them. It is really worth it.

The Schiller Theatre is a venue at Bismarkstrasse near the Ernst Reuter Platz Station that was built between 1905-06. This venue presently serves as the temporary home of Staatoper - Unter den Linden while it remains under reconstruction, scheduled for completion in Autumn 2017.

During our December visit to Berlin, we attended the Staatoper performance of Mozart's Magic Flute at Schiller Opera House and very much enjoyed our experience. While a less impressive venue in terms of location and aesthetics. Schiller is modern, seating is comfortable and sound quality is good. As such, it felt like a suitable alternative while the Staatoper house is being refurbished.

Overall, we enjoyed our evening at the Schiller Theatre but couldn't help but think what our impression of the performance would have been had our experience been at the Staatoper House instead. That is is something we would look forward during future visits to Berlin.

It is almost seven year now, that the Staatsoper Unter den Linden, has got this theater like their new home. It is not bad, but not to compera with the real Staatsoper. However the performances are mostly very interesting and good. Daniel Baremboim is the musical director of the theater.

We got ticket for Giselle with the State Ballet and, as the main theatre is closed for renovation, the Schiller is the replacement place.
That was great: we had great seats without any view restrictions and the acoustic of the theatre is very good.
Pity that the Statsopera Theatre is closed because it is supposed a wonderful theatre but the Schiller wasn't a disappointment.

We were really impressed with the acoustics in this (presumably 1950s) rectangular box of a concert hall that will house the Staatsopera until 2018 I think while their amazing central Berlin building is being rebuilt.
We saw Daniel Barenboim on the piano accompanying Lieder and later in the week we saw Die Meistersinger conducted by him.
Both were amazing musical experiences - Meistersinger was the first Wagner that I have seen live in person and I was blown away. It is so long that we really had not expected to stay to the end but we were transfixed by it.
A tip is that they sell very good quality fresh small eats and drinks on both levels for beforehand and in the intervals so you of not have to have had an evening meal beforehand. I suggest ordering some for the interval(s) at the same time as getting something in advance so that it is laid out for you already. They only take cash though - do not expect to use a credit card for this.

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 was fast working and very friendly.
There were only two people working at the bar so there were lines but those people were working very hard as well and everyone got their drinks in time!

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... Besides this theater has one long row, so you need to disturb many people until you reach your place, besides in case of fire there will be a jam for sure... Not wise design. On top of that... the personnel called the taxis, but nobody observed the line so people stared drifting around catching taxis on their way in... So the organization was also not the best their strength. Lets wait till 2017 when Berlin Opera opens - maybe there will be better )
