Deutsche Staatsoper Unter Den Linden

The Staatoper, Berlin's State Opera, is a magnificent 250 year old building and one of the most beautiful opera houses in the world. It is located in East Berlin along the Unter den Linden Avenue.

The Staatoper was built in a neo-classical style and was the first freestanding opera house to be built in Germany. It was originally built between 1741 and 1743 under the instructions of Frederick II and housed the Court Opera.

Unfortunately the Opera house was nearly destroyed by a fire in 1843. Extensive restoration work was carried out under the guidance of Carl Langhans. This gave rise to a new building called the Royal Opera House which, after the fall of the German Empire in 1918, became known as the Staatsoper unter den Linden.

During World War II it was again destroyed and underwent another major restoration, which endeavored successfully to restore it to its original grandeur.

The present interior decor is mainly in the French rococo and baroque styles with most of the rooms elaborately decorated. Paintings adorn both walls and ceilings and huge chandeliers hang from above. The floors are a mixture of wood and marble designed with intricate patterns. The marble floor in the Apollo-saal along with the decorated gilded columns and ceiling are breathtaking.

Throughout its history, the Staatoper, has attracted major artists from around the world and continues to do so up to the present day.
