About the Event
Explore the full range of human emotions with this uncompromising production of Giacomo Puccini's Tosca at the Deutsche Oper Berlin.
Puccini's musical expression is as brutal as it is tender, as intelligent as it is sentimental, as precise as it is dreamy. His focus is on authenticity, musical detail and social awareness. The poetic sound of the ostensibly mundane is unmistakable, like the heroism coupled with shrewdness, and the contrast between passionate commitment and cold remoteness.
Sung in Italian with surtitles in German and English

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.
