Public

King Frederick II of Prussia shortly after his accession to the throne commissioned the original building of the Berlin State Opera on the site. Construction work began in July 1741. After the collapse of the German Empire in 1918, the Opera was renamed Staatsoper unter den Linden and the Königliche Kapelle became Kapelle der Staatsoper. After the Berlin Wall was built in 1961, the Opera was somewhat isolated, but still maintained a comprehensive repertoire that featured the classic and romantic period together with contemporary ballet and operas.
