Staatsoper unter den Linden to Reopen in 2017

According to a DPA report, the Berlin Staatsoper intendant Jürgen Flimm said a reopening of the Staatsoper unter den Linden on October 3, 2017 is 99% certain. The company has been in exile at the Schiller Theater since the 2010-11 season. The extensive restoration of the house, projected to last four season, has dragged on and on. While I’d be delighted to see the Staatsoper back at its historic home for the opening of the 2017-18 season, I think we should take Flimm’s pronouncements with a grain of salt.
