The Deutsche Oper Berlin will mount their Ring Cycle in late May. As with previous visits to the former West, we will stay at the 3* Hotel Leonardo in Wilmersdorf Straße, just a five-minute walk from the Deutsche Oper. We like the Wilmersdorf / Charlottenburg neighbourhood very much while having easy access to everything else you might want to do whilst in Berlin.
This Ring, conducted by the outstanding Wagnerian Sir Donald Runnicles was created by Stefan Herheim under the most difficult of times during the pandemic with multiple cancellations and postponements. 2024 will be the first ‘non-Covid’ year to see a complete Cycle. Artists performing next year include Iain Patterson (Wotan/Das Rheingold); Derek Welton (Wotan/Die Walküre & Siegfried); Ricarda Merbeth (Brünnhilde); Michael König (Siegmund) and Elisabeth Tiege (Sieglinde).
We will include two lunches, four dinners plus our popular ‘late night soup & drinks’ after Die Walküre & Siegfried.
Flights are available from Heathrow, Manchester, Gatwick and other UK departure points on request. If you prefer to make your own flight arrangements and meet at the hotel you can deduct £300 from the tour cost.
Seating in the Parkett (stalls) at the Deutsche Oper is particularly good with an excellent rake. The holiday package cost is based on 2nd category tickets (Row 10).
