Welcome to the Staatsballett Berlin!

Sign up and become a member to our Friends and Supporters today. Support the artistic work of the company and experience ballet up close together with like-minded people in front of the stage and behind the scenes. There are multiple options for you to become part of the Staatsballett Berlin:

Since its inception in 2004, the Friends and Supporters have not only financially contributed to the Staatsballett Berlin but, first and foremost, with their passion for ballet and their deep-rooted interest in the artists and their work. All members are voices and advocates for the further development of Germany's biggest ballet company. It is their self-proclaimed task to strengthen the interest in and understanding of dance as an art form and promote the Staatsballett Berlin's reputation.

As a thank you for your contributions, all members are treated to a variety of behind-the-scenes exclusives. You will receive regular updates via newsletter and get insight looks at stage rehearsals, general rehearsals and morning classes in our studios at the Deutsche Oper Berlin. One week before official ticket sales begin, all members also have the opportunity to reserve their favoured seats in advance. In addition, seats to special events will be exclusively reserved for members.


Friend 100 € p.a.
Supporter 500 € p.a.
Premium Supporter 2.500 € p.a.

In addition, we would be happy to develop a customised and exclusive model together with you, which responds to your possibilities and wishes. Get in touch with us!
