About the Event
Look forward to an evening of rich melodies and opulent decor: The Deutsche Oper Berlin presents Amilcare Ponchielli's 'La Gioconda'.
Ponchielli combined French and Italian operatic virtues with 'La Gioconda'. Pure emotions emerge from melodies encapsulating the trapped passions of love, hatred, and vengeance against the gorgeous historic images of the French opéra, while accompanied by an extensive ballet and choir.

Deutsche Oper Berlin
Deutsche Oper Berlin is the biggest opera house in the German capital, and a member of the Berlin Opera Foundation established in the early 1900s. The original building was destroyed during the Second World War, but was eventually replaced, and the new theater opened in 1961 - six weeks after construction began on the Berlin Wall. Serving West Berlin, its sober, linear design avoids anything that might distract vistiors from the performance. The repertoire of the theater focuses on the great classics such as Mozart, Verdi and Strauss, but frequently presents contemporary opera as well. The Chorus of the Deutsche Oper has been named 'Chorus of the Year' many times for its outstanding performances.
