Discover the House
Our guided tours
, which are provided at weekends, enable visitors to take a vivid and informative look behind the scenes at the Komische Oper Berlin. We also hold special guided tours on the subjects of make-up, costumes, props and set design, which offer detailed insights into the work of individual departments in the opera house.
Two weeks before each premiere, on Sundays at 12 noon, the dramaturg responsible for the show stages an Introductory Matinée
in the foyer of the Komische Oper Berlin, focusing on the composer, the work and the staging that has been chosen. The director, conductor, set designer and costume designer explain the background to the production, to heighten the audience’s enjoyment.
From 10 o'clock on these Sundays visitors are able to meet in the inviting atmosphere of the foyer for Sunday brunch, provided by the opera gastronomy service.
Guest Lectures and After Show Lounge Parties at revival performances
"Every performance a Premiere!" This was the credo of the founder of the Komische Oper, Walter Felsenstein. We too celebrate the revival of a production just like a premiere, with guest lectures from renowned experts relating to the theme of the performance. .These lectures start 45 minutes prior to the revival performance, which is followed by the After Show Lounge
