January 1970

The New Year is duly welcomed by the Berlin Residence Orchestra and concertmaster Bruno Schmidt with a musical potpourri of pieces by Haendel and Mozart to Strauss and Lehár. The gala in the east wing of the baroque Charlottenburg Palace will provide the framework for a memorable transition between the years.


Dinner & New Year's Eve Concert
Elated compositions in the royal ambience of the Great Orangery Berlin will trigger our guests to contemplate the past and welcome the future. Our partner, the five-star Marriott Hotel Berlin, will prepare a three-course menu to be attained upon request prior to the concert. From quail to sea bass, our cherished visitors are offered an experience that is far more than a culinary preparation for the subsequent musical delicacies that will be presented at the gala concert.


The Orchestra
The ensemble consists of well-known musicians, who interpret baroque and classical opera with a keen sense of the compositions from that era. In April 2016 the orchestra under the direction of Bruno Schmidt celebrated its tenth anniversary!

Program and cast

State Opera Unter den Linden

Die Staatsoper Unter den Linden (ehemals: Königliche Oper, ab 1919: Preußische Staatsoper, ab 1955: Deutsche Staatsoper, umgangssprachlich: Lindenoper) ist ein Opernhaus an der Prachtstraße Unter den Linden 7 im Berliner Ortsteil Mitte. Im Auftrag Friedrichs II. in den Jahren 1741–1743 von Georg Wenzeslaus von Knobelsdorff im Stil des Friderizianischen Rokoko errichtet, wurde sie nach der Zerstörung im Zweiten Weltkrieg als Teil des Forum Fridericianum 1951–1955 von Richard Paulick wiederaufgebaut. Sie ist das älteste Opernhaus Berlins und das „erste bedeutende Theater überhaupt, das als monumentales, frei stehendes Bauwerk in einer Stadt errichtet wurde“.[1]
