Chorus:
Dear fans of the Chorus and opera,
The success of an evening can be ascribed to a number of factors – not least the chorus. The sheer volume of sound conveys a power that sends feelings soaring. Add to that the high degree of artistry and professionalism embodied by our singers. We are fully versed in the styles, genres and languages of opera. Our chorus has long enjoyed a worldwide reputation as a supreme exponent of Wagner and Verdi. Productions such as WOZZECK and HELIANE’S MIRACLE have underscored our proficiency in the musical theatre of the 20th century. It is my pleasure to present the new season – and we have some treats in store.

Sincerely, Jeremy Bines, Chorus Master

The sum of our voices
Part of a larger whole
“Often they garner a bare nod en passant despite being difficult to miss onstage. And hardly anyone in the stalls has the first idea what their names are - not that it would ever occur to anyone to question their importance for the production. The critics, too, rarely devote more than a couple of sentences to them, even though opera would be a shadow of itself without them. LOHENGRIN, AIDA or TURANDOT without chorus singers? Impossible.” So ran a tribute by Albrecht Thiemann to the operatic chorus ...

The Children’s and Youth Chorus
The singers in the children’s chorus of the Deutsche Oper Berlin may be young in years but they already have their sights set on the same goal as their professional colleagues in the ‘grown-up’ chorus: they want to thrill the audience. They want to triumph alongside the rest of the company.
