Deutsche Oper Berlin Cancels Performances

The Deutsche Oper Berlin was forced to shut down after the stage was flooded.

Per reports, faulty sprinklers were at the root of the problem, ending any hopes audiences had of seeing Tchaikovsky’s “The Nutcracker” take the stage. The flooding reportedly took place on Christmas Eve.

The company also had to shut down its performance of “The Barber of Seville” on Tuesday, per the company’s Facebook page and it looks like the upcoming showcase of “Die Zauberflöte” might wind up being either a semi-staged or concert performance. The performance of the Mozart masterwork was the only one of the winter. There are more performances scheduled for February, March, May and June 2018.

There is another performance of “Barber” slated for Dec. 30 and a final one on Jan. 13, 2018. There is also no word on the company’s production “Le Nozze di Figaro” or “La Bohème” both also scheduled throughout the rest of the week.
