Deutsche Oper Berlin

The German Opera in Berlin (Deutsche Oper Berlin) is an opera and ballet theater, the largest of the three existing in the German capital. The German opera is located in the Charlottenburg area.

The theater building was built in 1912 by the architect Heinrich Seelings on the initiative of citizens of the then independent city of Charlottenburg. In contrast to the Berlin Royal Opera, the Charlottenburg Theater, which was called the German Opera House (Deutsche Opernhaus), decided to fundamentally abandon pomp and representation lodges. The majestic classicist building housed 2,300 places.

Due to the similarity of the names, German opera is often confused with the Berlin State Opera (Deutsche Staatsoper), located on Unter den Linden. Moreover, the latter was often renamed – it was called the State Opera Unter den Linden (Die Staatsoper Unter den Linden), the Prussian State Opera (Preußische Staatsoper), and the Royal Court Opera (Königliche Hofoper).

Charlottenburg Castle

Charlottenburg Castle is the largest and most significant palace ensemble in Berlin. He was one of the favorite castles of seven generations of the rulers of these lands – first the Brandenburg Electors, then the Prussian kings and the German Kaisers of the Hohenzollern. Each generation added something new to the decoration of the castle, expanding and building up both it and the adjacent park.

The construction of Lutzeburg Castle (as Charlottenburg was originally called) began in 1695, in the then village of Lützow, seven kilometers from Berlin, as the summer residence of the Fürrich Iurie and his wife Sophia Charlotte of Braunschweig and Luneburg. The young wife of Frederick came from the rich and noble kingdom of Hanover, and even claimed to be the bride of the son of the French king Louis XIV. Continue reading
