The Berliner Operngruppe e.V. was founded in 2010 by the conductor Felix Krieger in order to present operas in Berlin that stand outside the usual opera repertoire and have either never been heard here or have not been heard for many decades. After the first performances in Radialsystem V, the Berliner Operngruppe has been performing in the Konzerthaus Berlin with its project choir and orchestra since 2013. The highly regarded semi-staged productions by the Berliner Operngruppe include the German premiere of Donizetti’s Betly and the Berlin premiere of Verdi’s Stiffelio and Puccini’s Edgar.
In February 2020 the Berliner Operngruppe celebrated its 10th anniversary with this Iris.
