Christmas Concert Streamed from St. Michaelis

On December 26 at 8:15 pm, Kent Nagano and the Philharmonic present a festive Yuletide programme from Hamburg's main church, St. Michaelis. Guest soloist Dorothea Röschmann sings "Laudamus te" from Bach's Mass in B-minor as well as "Pie Jesu" by Gabriel Fauré. Together with Bruckner's String Quintet arranged for string orchestra and "Yamaga" by Stefan Schäfer the evening combines a transcendental musical language and Christian doxology for a special Christmas programme in difficult times.

Concert streams of the Philharmonics

The concerts of the Philharmonic Academy took place in early November without an audience in the hall, but via the Hamburg State Opera's streaming service. The Rossini gala has also been recorded and is now available for viewing. All these programmes can be found on the YouTube channel of the State Orchestra and State Opera. Read more...


No events for audience until January 31, 2021

Unfortunately, the Hamburg State Opera will remain closed due to the official order. All performances up to and including January 31, 2021 are cancelled. Information on the refund procedure for tickets already purchased will be available here. Due to the dynamic events, we will probably only be able to communicate an update on the performance schedule at short notice. We are working on offering digital concert streams for you. Information on this will follow shortly. We ask for your patience!


Kent Nagano on the current situation

Dear music lovers, dear audience, dear citizens of Hamburg, if our concerts, opera and ballet performances can unfortunately not take place as planned, we still continue to rehearse for you! The spirit of music only lives when it is shared with the audience, with you: our family. In the upcoming weeks we will conceive new digital formats and programs that we couldn't have realized in our regular schedule. We warmly invite you to join us. Stay well and safe, and stay connected!
