Staatsoper für alle

Surrounded by the Staatsoper, Humboldt University and Hotel de Rome, and bordered by Unter den Linden, there is hardly a location in Berlin that is as central ¬– in both geographic and cultural terms – as Bebelplatz. For more than a decade now, it has been the venue for a free, open-air symphony concert by the Staatskapelle and Daniel Barenboim, and is open to all Berliners and visitors to the city. The concert will take place once again in 2017, just a few days before the reopening of the opera house in October.
