In 1925, Bruno Walter became musical director of the Städtische Oper in Berlin, where he also began a long association with the Salzburg Festival. In the 1920s, Berlin had a number of great conductors including Wilhelm Furtwängler, Otto Klemperer, Erich Kleiber, and Walter. The last phase of Walter's operatic career in Germany commenced on September 18, 1925, when he conducted a performance of Richard Wagner's Meistersinger. Although Walter's work in the opera house kept him busy, he also had a series of concerts with the Berlin Philharmonic even as he continued his exhausting travels to cities such as London and Milan. Walter's final opera during his tenure at the Städtische Oper was Fidelio, which he conducted on April 14, 1929. That same year, he left Berlin for Leipzig to succeed Furtwängler as music director of the Gewandhaus Orchestra.
