Misha  Aster - State Opera


A German opera house – From the Weimar Republic to German reunification

October 3, 2017 will see the return of the Berlin State Opera to its original building after a seven-year enforced closure – an event of international significance.

Misha Aster, author of the highly acclaimed book The Reich's Orchestra, here tells the story of the State Opera Unter den Linden from the Kaiserreich to the present day, creating a colourful picture of the stormy 20th century, during which music was repeatedly ideologically exploited by various political systems.

"Misha Aster recounts the interlacing paths of the Berlin State Opera with the emotional vigour of an inventive writer masterfully tapping into the historical sources."

Süddeutsche Zeitung
