Staatsoper Unter den Linden

By command of King Frederick II, the »Königliche Hofoper (Royal Court Opera)« was opened in a festive ceremony on 7th December 1742 with a performance of Carl Heinrich Graun’s gala opera »Cleopatra e Cesare«, which had been composed specifically for this purpose. At that time the Opera was the largest opera house in Europe and the first detached building of its kind. This day also marked the beginning of more than 250 years of successful cooperation of Staatsoper and Staatskapelle whose roots date back to the 16th century. 275 years later Staatsoper Unter den Linden looks back on a chequered and very eventful history, moulded by different political and artistic phases. The opera moving back into its traditional domicile Unter den Linden in this anniversary year after seven years of profound re-building and refurbishment marks a new chapter in this history.
