Led by their artistic director, violinist Petra Müllejans, Freiburger Barockorchester has collaborated with numerous acclaimed soloists and conductors over the years. Their repertoire encompasses a wide range of composers from the Baroque era to the early Romantic period, including Johann Sebastian Bach, George Frideric Handel, Antonio Vivaldi, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, and Ludwig van Beethoven.
The venue for this upcoming concert is the historic Staatsoper Unter den Linden. Situated in Berlin's Mitte district, it holds great cultural significance as one of Germany's oldest opera houses.

The opera house has been a hub for artistic excellence throughout its long history. It has hosted world premieres of significant operas by composers such as Mozart and Richard Strauss. With its opulent interiors and superb acoustics, it continues to attract both local audiences and international visitors who appreciate its rich cultural heritage.
