Grand Opening of the Season 15/16

One house, 666 hosts. The Deutsche Oper Berlin and the Staatsballett Berlin cordially invite you to join them in celebrating the start of the 2015/2016 season. Spend a day getting a first-hand insight into musical theatre both on stage and behind the scenes. Throughout the Grand Opening the Deutsche Oper Berlin and the Staatsballett Berlin will not only be presenting excerpts from their current musical and staged productions; they will also be providing glimpses into the artistic process. A technology show will reveal what the new stage machinery is capable of and visitors will be able to try on opera stars’ costumes in the foyers and watch dancers from the Staatsballett rehearsing in the ballet studios. The open day will last from 1.30pm to 9pm and will include workshops, concerts, mini operas, film shows and instrument presentations in rooms that are normally out of bounds to the general public. This will be your chance to familiarise yourself with everything on offer at the Deutsche Oper Berlin and the Staatsballett throughout the year – ranging from large-scale operas such as Meyerbeer’s VASCO DA GAMA to the experimental musical theatre in the Tischlerei and encompassing the many activities geared to children and teenagers led by “Tanz ist Klasse!” and the Young Opera department. Amidst all this there will be ensemble performances in the foyers by musicians of the Deutsche Oper Berlin , the Children’s Chorus will be putting on a show on Götz-Friedrich-Platz and a film lounge will play excerpts from successful past productions.

And if you like, you can tread the boards of the stage yourself, either in the Mitmach Orchestra, in which amateurs and musicians of the Deutsche Oper Berlin orchestra collaborate on a series of concerts for presentation in the Tischlerei, or on the main stage as part of the “Sing NABUCCO” Mitsing Concert with the Chorus of the Deutsche Oper Berlin.

New Scenes III - International composition competition organized by the Deutsche Oper Berlin and Hochschule für Musik Hanns Eisler Berlin

Call for entries
New scenes for music theatre: for the third time, the Deutsche Oper Berlin, in cooperation with the Hochschule für Musik Hanns Eisler, invites entries to the international composition competition “New Scenes”. Up to three winners of the competition will receive a stipend to each compose a music theatre work of 20 to 30 minutes. The libretti for these pieces will be developed in collaboration with the Deutsche Oper Berlin and the Hochschule für Musik Hanns Eisler [by graduates of the degree course “Theatrical Writing” at the Universität der Künste Berlin]. The “new scenes” will be premiered on 28th April 2017 in the Tischlerei at the Deutsche Oper Berlin, staged by three teams of directors from the Hochschule für Musik Hanns Eisler.
The competition is open to composers of up to 35 years of age. The entrant will be judged on the basis of the submission of a section from one of their own music theatre pieces that they deem to represent their work most clearly.

Conditions
Submission: the entrants are asked to submit the following documents:
Sample of work from a piece of music theatre (score and optionally a CD, two copies of both)
CV and address (including e-mail address)
Deadline: 30th September 2015

Process
Announcement of winners: 16th November 2015
Prizes: Up to three prizes may be awarded. The prize includes a stipend (5,000 Euro each) to compose a 20 to 30 minute piece of music theatre.
Submission of the piano score: 1st September 2016
Submission of full score and voice material: 1st November 2016
World premiere and further performances in April 2017 in the Tischlerei at the Deutsche Oper Berlin


The Tischlerei
The Tischlerei at the Deutsche Oper Berlin was opened in the 2012/2013 season in the theatre’s former carpentry workshop when Dietmar Schwarz took over as artistic director. The venue can seat up to 400 people in variable arrangements and is a space for a diverse programme of productions. This includes experimental and contemporary forms of music theatre, along with the series of Tischlerei concerts and the varied shows staged by the Young Deutsche Oper, with music theatre for children and young people, toddler and baby concerts, as well as a variety of different partnerships with schools, third level colleges and partners in the independent scene. Projects have been and are being developed and staged in the Tischlerei with artists as different as the composers Gordon Kampe, Matthew Herbert, Ole Hübner, Hans Peter Kuhn, Konrad Boehmer and der Band The bianca Story, directors like Jakop Ahlbom, Annechien Koerselman and Daniel Pfluger, and artists groups like Nico and the Navigators and norton.commander.productions. On top of this are projects with young artists at the beginning of their careers, such as the biannual project NEW SCENES, now in its third year.
