To the current discussion of the opening ceremony of the 15th SemperOpernball

Regarding the current discussion about the gala opening of the 15th Semper Opera Ball, the Semperoper Dresden would like to stress that the event organizer Semper Opernball e.V. has sole responsibility for the content and artistic orientation of the event. The Semperoper is merely providing the premises for the event within the framework of a rental agreement as well as some technical and logistical support.

While the Semperoper cannot speak for Semper Opernball e.V. in this regard, we would like to emphasize that we view ourselves as an international, cosmopolitan cultural institution that rejects any form of exclusion. Inquiries about the Semper Opera Ball should be addressed directly to the press office of Semper Opernball e.V..
