The programme for the 2022 Berlin Festtage includes the trilogy of Mozart operas with libretti by Lorenzo da Ponte. A further added attraction will be for the audience to enjoy the leading singers in different roles over the course of a few days. Opera lovers with longer memories will be delighted to hear two great singers from the past decades – the Italian soprano Barbara Frittoli and German mezzo Waltraud Meier enjoying themselves in roles we might not have expected them to take on later in their careers.

The Itinerary:

With so much on offer, we have tried to achieve a well balanced programme of excursions and performances. Visits to the city’s two leading art collections are included – the Alte National Museum and the Gemäldergalerie. We spend more time on Museum Island with visits to David Chipperfield’s newly opened James Simon Galerie, the £100 million centrepiece of the plan to redesign Berlin’s cultural acropolis. The elegant colonnade leads the visitor to Chipperfield’s redesigned Neues Museum. We go to Potsdam, once the residence of the Prussian kings and one of the glories of Baroque architecture, with magnificent landscaped parks. Visits to the towering Deutsche Historisches Museum, Check Point Charlie and the Berlin Wall Museum serve to remind us of the city’s recent history.
