Thank you for your support! We hope you have a great summer.

Behind us are difficult, unusual, but also particularly creative weeks. Since 11 March, the Bayerische Staatsoper could no longer perform on a regular basis. And yet we have been able to put on a total of more than 40 events - some in unusual settings - 13 live streams and almost 30 opera and ballet performances as video on demand for you.  We would like to take this opportunity to thank all our staff and artists who made this possible - but above all we would like to thank you, our audience, for your loyalty and trust. Before we say goodbye and head into the somewhat premature theatre holidays, let us take a brief look back at this special time. We wish you a wonderful summer and hope to see you again soon.

Wir sagen Danke!
