Long Description:

[DE]
Der sogenannte Opernplatz an der Bismarckstraße Ecke Krumme Straße gegenüber der Deutschen Oper Berlin erhielt 1987 seinen heutigen Namen. Die Parkanlage hat den Rechtscharakter einer “Privatstraße des öffentlichen Verkehrs”. Zur 750-Jahr-Feier Berlins 1987 schenkte die City of London Berlin die Shakespeare-Büste von Pam Taylor. Charlottenburg revanchierte sich, benannte den sogenannten Opernplatz um in Shakespeare-Platz und stellte die Büste hier auf. Charlottenburg unterhält seit 1968 eine Partnerschaft mit dem Londoner Bezirk Lewisham. Über viele Shakespeare-Stücke haben später bedeutende Komponisten Opern komponiert. Allein Verdi hat eine ganze Reihe höchst erfolgreicher Shakespeare-Opern geschaffen. Insofern trägt dieser Platz unmittelbar gegenüber der Deutschen Oper durchaus einen passenden Namen.

The so-called Opera Square on Bismarckstraße at the corner of Krumme Straße opposite the Deutsche Oper Berlin was given its current name in 1987. The park has the legal character of a "private road of public transport".
For the 750th anniversary of Berlin in 1987, the City of London Berlin donated the Shakespeare bust of Pam Taylor. Charlottenburg retaliated, renamed the so-called Opera Square to Shakespeare Square and set up the bust here. Charlottenburg has maintained a partnership with the London district of Lewisham since 1968. Many composers of Shakespeare have composed operas later on. Verdi alone has created a whole series of highly successful Shakespeare operas. In this respect, this place directly opposite the German Opera quite apt name. link
