Who owns the stage of the Deutsche Oper Berlin? With this last edition of the series AUS DEM HINTERHALT under the motto MACHT DER KÜNSTE we invite you to a huge orchestral karaoke happening in the Tischlerei. Special guests on stage this time, besides familiar faces from six years of HINTERHALT and singers from our ensemble, are you, dear audience! The greatest hits of the opera repertoire, from pop, rock and jazz - from Wagner to the Beatles, from Puccini to Bilderbuch - will be sung to specially written orchestral arrangements.

In our examination of Richard Wagner's DIE MEISTERSINGER, we put the art form and the business of opera through its paces once again in good old ambush style. On the basis of the questions about music, its production and evaluation negotiated in Wagner's opera, we critically reflect on what opera can and should achieve in these times. We carry the hand, the iconic symbol of the power of the arts, into the city and say: All power of the arts to the audience, everyone is a Meistersinger!

Under the motto "Power of the Arts", this BACKGROUND to THE MASTER SINGERS OF NUREMBERG concludes the series, which comments on the premieres on the big stage, based on artistic positions of the present.

AUS DEM HINTERHALT is curated by the singer, composer and director Elia Rediger, who in six years of HINTERHALT has stood on the stage of the Tischlerei together with members of the ensembles of the Deutsche Oper Berlin, with artists such as Max Prosa, Sofia Portanet, Polypore, Mary Ocher, Bonaparte, Rosa Anschütz and the Brigade Futur 3.
