Berlin Comic Opera

Designed by the Austrian architects Helmer and Fellner, the house known today as the 'Komische Oper' (Comic Opera) opens under the name 'Theater Unter den Linden'. Theatre has been performed on this historic site – near the famous boulevard Unter den Linden – since 1764. Here German theatre companies under the direction of Schuch, Koch and Döbbelin premiered plays by Goethe (Götz von Berlichingen, 1774) and Lessing (Nathan der Weise, 1783) as well as German Singspiele by Hiller, André and Gluck and opéras comiques by Grétry, Salieri and Paisiello.
