The Bayerische Staatsoper would like to thank all sponsors and partners for their generous support. Their enduring, active support not only provides financial security – it also establishes a strong and lasting connection. Your loyalty strengthens and encourages us in our work.

 

Many thanks to our glabal partner

The Bayerische Staatsoper looks forward to expanding this inspiring and creative partnership and to finding further innovative ways to anchor art and music in our society with BMW as its global partner.

 

Dear Opera Guest,

For half a century now cultural engagement has been a fixed component of the BMW Group’s global portfolio. Our focus is on interaction and reciprocal knowledge transfer. The highest maxim in all our partnerships is the creative freedom that we consider indispensable. In the BMW Group’s self-image our collaborations with artistic and cultural institutions are an essential part of social sustainability – yesterday, today and tomorrow. We have always reached and moved people together. I am especially pleased by the fact that in the fiftieth year of our global cultural engagement our partnership with the Bayerische Staatsoper also celebrates an anniversary. For 25 years, we have been enabling inspiring experiences in the opera and the summer festival. With Opera for All we also make the concert hall accessible to the general public, aiming to remove cultural barriers.

Have a wonderful time at and with the Bayerische Staatsoper!

With heartfelt gratitude
Ilka Horstmeier
Member of the BMW AG Board of Management

MANY THANKS TO THE RH GROUP OF COMPANIES – NICKY AND ROBERT HÜBNER

The RH group of companies has been an owner-run family business since 1956, specialising in the project development and management of office buildings, hotels, retail parks and residential and commercial buildings. Robert Hübner has been at the helm as Executive Manager in the third generation since 1995.

The RH group of companies expanded its commitment significantly during the 2019/20 season.  As part of their new Excellence Partnership they help to ensure the Bayerische Staatsoper’s high standards of quality, striving to bring inspiring singers to Munich.

MANY THANKS TO SIEMENS AG

Siemens AG is a leading international technology corporation. The company is active worldwide, primarily in the areas of electrification, automation and digitisation, and participates as a sponsor and driving force in numerous cultural events at the highest possible level. Siemens has been the main sponsor of theOrchestra Academy since 2007.

The Siemens Arts Program, whose activities aim to support excellent young artists around the globe, is an essential component of Siemens' cultural commitment. This is further ensured with their own  talent contests (e.g. the Siemens Opera Contest) and by encouraging junior staff to interact with established international cultural institutions, such as the Bayerische Staatsoper. Another explicit goal of the programme is the use of new technologies. Classical works by Pytor Tchaikovsky and Friedrich Gulda, for example, have been recorded with the Orchestra Academy, using the immersive 3D Sound method. It adds further sound reproduction axes to the usual stereo method, creating a listening experience akin to a live performance: giving the impression of sitting in the middle of the orchestra.

MANY THANKS TO VAN CLEEF & ARPELS

Founded in 1906 on Place Vendôme in Paris, the jeweller Van Cleef & Arpels inaugurated their first branch in Germany in 2017 on Munich’s Maximilianstraße. As a neighbour of the National Theatre and a long-time ballet supporter, the expansion of Van Cleef's commitment in Munich focuses on our dance company.

The cooperation with internationally renowned opera houses and ballet ensembles has been an instrinsic part of the company's philosophy for decades. Ballet is a key theme for Van Cleef & Arpels, fusing excellence with beauty and harmony - thus mirroring the company's core values.

The Bayerische Staatsballett has enjoyed Van Cleef & Arpels' support since 2018. We'd like to especially thank Van Cleef & Arpels for their generous support of a new production of Jewels.
