New heroes for a grand opera

From Carmen to La Bohème, from the Fledermaus to Maria Stuarda. The Deutsche Oper Berlin boasts outstanding productions and internationally renowned artists. We help this Berlin institution with new faces to a greater visibility in the cityscape: protagonists of the opera become new heroes.


The tradition of the Deutsche Oper Berlin, the high artistic aspirations, the quality of the program and productions to raise awareness of the public are a special challenge. The goal is to inspire a new audience for the opera.

You’ve never been to the opera? And do not know what you can look at first? Call Jürgen Michalski; he will be happy to advise you.



Better than other forms of art, the opera offers the opportunity to experience the diversity of their personalities, their conflicts and contradictions emotionally and at the same time highly entertaining. The new posters and animations of Realgestalt reflect this depth with an intriguing lightness. They open other, serene accesses to the opera figures, without revealing the complexity of the content.
