Why not ad a list of notable actors performing at the opera from 1742 to present?

I guess you could do this, but the list would be pretty long. Another thing to consider: are you only going to include regular cast members or also visiting singers? Matthias Röder 17:54, 24 July 2007 (UTC)

Well, i was thinking about giving a representative list of the most popular actors; of course, it is impossible to include all, but it would be interesting to have, say, at least one male and one female representative from each generation. The regular actors would be most important, but if a visitning actor stayed for a long time and made a strong impression, he or she could be included as well - in especially the 18th century, actors was often foreginers, but should be counted as belonging to the country they played in.-- 09:26, 25 July 2007 (UTC)

Why actors? It's an opera house, so the stars are all singers. --AndreasPraefcke 14:18, 25 July 2007 (UTC)

I suggest that you start a separate article for such a list. For instance: List of opera singers at the Berlin State Opera. There are many similar cases in which this approach was taken. If you included the list in the main article it [the article] might get too long. Matthias Röder 23:43, 25 July 2007 (UTC)

Perhaps you are right, but that would be a task for someone else - unfortunately, i haven't the knowledge to do that.

Do you mean the knowledge to start a new article? It's quite easy. If you register as a user you can create the article yourself (Just do a search on the title you would like to have and follow the link "Create this page"). If you don't want to register for some reason, let me know, and I can start he article for you. You could then add names of actors and singers to the list.
I think this is a great idea and you (we) should start this list! One thing: We could even start with the list in this article and move it to a new article once it gets too long! Matthias Röder 22:07, 30 July 2007 (UTC)

Thank you for that suggestion, that sounds fun, but what i ment was, i do not have very much information of the subject, wich is why i suggested it; i thought it would be interesting to read about. I thougt it would be interesting to read about historical actors from other countrys, and i have suggested this also for Poland. If you should decide you want to create such an article, i would be happy to read it!

Ok, I understand. I will keep your suggestion in mind! All the best! Matthias Röder 16:26, 31 July 2007 (UTC)

There is an error in the details regarding the history, however I don't have all the information I need to correct it. Minister of Propaanda and Popular Enlightenment Dr. Joseph Goebbels delivered the Total War speech on Feb 18, 1943, not in 1944 as indicated in the article. I can not speak to when the Opera was actually closed. I don't believe there were performances in 1944...only the Berlin Philharmoic continued under special consideration by Reich Minister Speer, who issued "special exemptions" to all the musicians.

Erich Kleiber returned?[edit]

The Article on Erich Kleiber says he never resumed conducting at this Opera after the war but this article says he was conductor again from 1954-1955 — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 20:28, 7 May 2015 (UTC)
