When was the Komische Oper Berlin founded? What do they mean by ‘Komische Opera’ or ‘comic opera’? And what’s actually behind the curtains at the Schiller Theatre? You can get answers to all these questions with a guided tour of the Komische Oper Berlin at the Schiller Theatre. Enlightened by fascinating theatre anecdotes, amusing looks back in time, and digital glimpses of the future, we take a closer look at what’s happening behind the scenes. Experience the magic of the stage up close!

How many musicians actually fit in the orchestra pit? How many members does the entire orchestra of the Komische Oper Berlin have, and why do the musicians sometimes play behind a curtain? All questions about music will be answered in this guided tour. Together with the orchestra managers, we’ll chat about the scheduling of duties, meet orchestra musicians in the pit, and look over the shoulders of our colleagues in the orchestra.
