The Deutsche Oper are performing all of the operas from Rienzi onwards next season, excepting Parsifal, with good casts. There is a mini Wagner Festival from the end of January 2010 for 2 weeks.

With Runnicles as MD and the Staatsoper in exile at the inadequate Schiller Theater, I know where my Berlin visits will be.
