  • Sometimes life is stranger than fiction. We know where we want to go and still choose a roundabout route to get there. Yet the road less travelled is often more exciting and every adventure is a door to new worlds! But we don’t always know the way, and that’s when we need companions to give us direction. But where do we want to end up anyway? How do we know when we’re there? And what happens after that?

    In the 2015/2016 season the Young Opera section of the Deutsche Oper Berlin will be telling stories about being on the move. The musical theatre production THE WANDERINGS OF ODYSSEUS presents us with a life journey with all its highs and lows. In our ODYSSEY INTO THEATRE audio walk we send school classes out on expeditions in the city. In the WHERE ARE YOU GOING? music lab held during the winter holidays 50 children go out collecting sounds associated with travel. And in the major NEULAND youth project refugees meet Berlin teenagers and work on building a common utopia.

    We leave the opera house and head out into the city, into schools, kindergartens, prisons and youth centres. There are projects and other initiatives to suit everyone; on offer are workshops, courses of further training for teachers, play clubs and two mobile musical-theatre productions involving children’s day-care centres.

    We look forward to a fascinating journey with you all during the 2015/2016 season and can’t wait to see where this adventure will take us.

  • Children's opera for 6-10 year-olds.
    The Opernmäuse ('opera mice') are back and they're taking over the opera house! Looking, listening, learning..., they're peeking behind the scenes, taking tours and workshops, being asked for their impressions at rehearsals of our children's productions and generally peering and probing into every nook and cranny of the Opera. All we can say is: Go for it!

    Opernmäuse membership covers a whole season. Mäuse meetings are held around once a month, on different weekdays, from September 2016 onwards.

    one-off fee of € 20,- [Places are limited.]
    Registrations via Ticket Service of the Deutsche Oper Berlin
    Tel.: +49 [30] 343 84 343

    Last year's mice are this year's old hands; they can take part in a variety of events - sitting in, for example, on rehearsals of children's productions. Registrations are through the Young Opera office.

Work experience at the Opera

Work experience at the Opera

  • For teenagers aged 14 and over
    Doing work experience at the Opera is exciting! At the Deutsche Oper Berlin we offer placements and many opportunities to sit on on one activity or another. At the Young Opera teenagers from Class 9 upwards can also get their first taste of an occupation as part of a school placement. For pupils interested in manual or technical fields there are placements available in the workshops and ateliers of the Stage Department of the Oper in Berlin Foundation. As a general rule, any musical-theatre institution will be made up of many departments covering a wide range of activities.

  • So before you apply for a placement at an opera house, you should have an idea of what department you want to be part of. On the website of the Deutscher Bühnenverein there is a detailed description of occupations connected with the theatre. With long placements in particular you should also bear in mind that people on work experience in theatres do not get paid. An overview of the various fields in which placements are available at the Deutsche Oper Berlin and Berlin Stage Department, the requirements for acceptance and the names and details of contact persons are all available for download here. Download-PDF in German language.

Children’s Chorus – for children aged 8 to 13

  • Children’s Chorus members meet at least twice a week. Since its creation in 2008 the Chorus has taken the children’s chorus role in almost all our opera productions and also appears on stage in concerts both ‘home’ and ‘away’ and in contemporary works of musical theatre held in the Tischlerei. Would you like to take your place on the main stage, performing alongside the great stars of opera and sing at the Paris Christmas market in LA BOHEME or dance in Seville’s marketplace in CARMEN? Do you have a good voice and the pluck to perform on stage? Then sign up for a casting session.

    Voice coaches: Rosemarie Arzt, Saskia Klumpp, Natali Buck, Andrea Schwarzbach, Christian Lindhorst
    Carers / supervisors: Juliane Menzel, Tanja Wagner, Helga Müller-Hau

    The Children’s Chorus of the Deutsche Oper Berlin is supported by the Deutsche Oper Berlin Children’s Chorus support association Dobolino e. V., the Berliner Volksbank and the Berliner Morgenpost.

The Voice Changers – For boys aged 12 to 15

If boys’ voices are breaking, they are ripe for the “Voice Changers”. Under the guidance of Rosemarie Arzt a voice in the process of breaking is seen as a period of discovery for the voice rather than an impediment to singing. These discoveries are worked into brand-new pieces which are performed by the group in public at regular intervals, accompanied by small, choreographed elements.

Grand Opening of the Season 2016/2017

One house, 666 hosts. The Deutsche Oper Berlin and the Staatsballett Berlin cordially invite you to join them in celebrating the start of the 2016/2017 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 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 to the experimental musical theatre in the Tischlerei and encompassing the many activities geared to children and teenagers led by Staatsballett 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.

Grand Opening of the Season 2016/2017 / 3. September, 2016 / from 15:00h to 22:00

What thinking went into the architectural complex concealed behind the long, exposed-aggregate concrete façade on Bismarckstraße? What goes into designing a stage set? What happens at rehearsals? How and where are the precious costumes administered? Visitors will also learn some lesser-known details of the eventful history of the opera house, which, with its new, modern productions and its repertoire of early treasures, provides a cross-section of more than 40 years of productions and performances.

TUSCH (Theater und Schule)

TUSCH, a network for cultural education covering the areas of theatre and opera, unites under a single umbrella approx. 150 Berlin schools and 35 Berlin stages. This year we will again be pursuing a joint project with our partner school, the Peter-Ustinov-Schule in Charlottenburg. On the fringe of this project there will be a range of organised events, with pupils also attending performances at the opera house and sitting in on rehearsals, and artists visiting the school.

We offer workshops on practically every production, bookable in conjunction with an attendance at an opera. In the run-up to the performance school groups not only learn the storyline of the relevant work but also get to grips in a fun way with the language of theatre, the production and the music. Workshops are held in the opera house or at your school. Duration: approx. 2 school hours.

Pre- or post-performance talks

For pupils who want to ask questions relating to the production and are keen to meet the artists. In a pre- or post-performance talk pupils think about the rehearsal or fully-fledged performance that they have just seen or are about to see. They hone their ability to take in what they are seeing and learn how to discuss aesthetic assessments. Talks are held in the opera house or at your school. Duration: 1-2 school hours.

Staff outing to the opera

The theatre is a place of interaction and encounter! We will organise an evening at the Deutsche Oper Berlin for your entire staff room, your department or your day-care centre team. Select a performance and we will organise cut-price tickets and give you an informal pep talk on the opera you’re about to see. We look forward to seeing you!
