Concerts in November and December
With successful concerts in the Philharmonie and the Villa Elisabeth as well as guest performances in Düsseldorf and Hamburg we were finally able to start the 20/21 season with new momentum after the long break which the Covid 19 pandemic has imposed on the cultural sector. We are glad to return with more concerts in November and December. We have compiled the most important information below.
Programmes with several variations
Since very large orchestras are still not allowed the stage of the Philharmonie, we had to adapt or redesign most of the concert programs, especially our 'Wagner Perspectives' festival. However, we are very pleased to be able to present Sir Simon Rattle, Robin Ticciati, Leonard Slatkin and Marie Jacquot at DSO's rostrum, as planned, and an outstanding soloist cast featuring sopranos Anu Komsi, Dorothea Röschmann and Yeree Suh, mezzo-sopranos Julie Boulianne and Magdalena Kožená, baritone Matthias Goerne, bass John Relyea, violinists Alina Ibragimova and Alina Pogostkina, and violist Timothy Ridout. All concert programmes can be found here.
Tickets for November and December
In recent weeks, the Philharmonie's hygiene concept has been revised once again, and we are delighted that we now will be able to welcome 1000 guests to our concerts starting in November – detailed information on the new hygiene and admission rules can be found below on this page. Tickets for the concerts in November have been available since October 15th, tickets for the December concerts from November 16th – this staggering is still necessary so that we can adapt the hall plan to current developments. Our ticket office will gladly accept advance orders in writing at any time.
Subscriptions in November and Dezember
The subscription series in the Philharmonie will have to take a pause in November and December, too. However, as our subscribers are our most loyal guests, they will be able to obtain tickets at exclusive special rates for the reduced number of seats available, even before they go on public sale. Subscribers have already received detailed information about this by mail
Hygiene and new Rules
The health and safety of the audience and performers is our highest priority. For this reason, precautionary measures have been developed for your visit in coordination with the various venues to help contain the Covid 19 pandemic. The Philharmonie, in particular, has an excellent ventilation system that permanently blows disinfected supply air under the chairs into the auditorium and exhausts exhaust air upwards. Before and after admission, the door handles, handrails and sanitary areas are cleaned and disinfected.
The following, newly updated rules apply to all visitors:
