Press service

Dear Sir or Madam,

welcome to the Staatsoper Stuttgart’s press section. Here you are able to download press releases and press photographs of our various artists and productions. Once you click on the requested photographs, your individual press folder will be put together and automatically send to your email address. For that service, a password is not necessary. Please take into account, however, that the procedure can take a few minutes. Please also note that photographs have to be published with the copyright stated. Usage of photographs is only free of charge within the context of up-to-date media and press coverage. For anyfurther use, please contact the appropriate photographer directly.

Use of Imagery
How it works
Production pictures are available for download in printable quality as jpg files. All important information like copyright, cast, staff and premiere date are listed in the file details. The picture first appears in low res. By clicking the red circle above with the left mouse button, you place the picture in your virtual press kit which will then appear in the menu bar’s top right-hand corner. Once you finished your selection, enter your e-mail address and your editorial office in the corresponding fields. You will then receive an e-mail with the requested photographs as zip file.

Production photographs may only be published if the photographer is named. Their use is only free of charge in the context of current reporting on Staatsoper Stuttgart’s productions. Portraits by Matthias Baus and Marco Borggreve may be published free of charge for reporting purposes provided the photographer is credited. For further use, please contact either our press office or the respective photographer.

Please call us if you encounter any difficulties with the download process or have any further questions.
