Young Opera:
So, there are the people up on stage singing and acting and the people out in the dim auditorium watching and listening, right? Kind of, yes, but opera is much more than that. Opera happens – in nursery schools and classrooms, on the main stage and our rehearsal stages. Everyone can do it: we have teenagers and children taking an active part. You are the audience and you are the people who make opera. Opera can be many things. Opera is music and theatre, method and sound, making friends and experimenting, making up stories and discussing them, drawing up utopias and designing society. Opera has many languages. Opera can be story, music, movement, us. Opera can be conquered. Opera is what you make it. We’re looking forward to the 2019/20 season with you.
Welcome to Young Opera!

Samuel Penderbayne: The Snow Queen
With humour and awe Brigitte Dethier and Samuel Penderbayne will tell a road-trip movie together: musical flowers, a croaking clarinet, a tuba reindeer and the eerily beautiful synthesiser world of the Snow Queen are just a few ingredients in this musical theatre in which the children experience the story up close.

Our options for school classes
A partner for teachers

What do school children need to know? And what does theatre involve? What ways of conveying information should you be using in class and which works are suitable for your pupils? How can musical theatre, as aesthetic and didactic creative principles, be woven into the school curriculum?



Our options for teachers
Tickets for children and teenagers for €10.00
Humperdinck: Hansel and Gretel (8+)
Andreas Homoki and his set designer Wolfgang Gussmann tell the story so that children can enjoy it. To the opulence of the music is counterposed a lightness and a poetic language of images that culminates especially well in the enchanting nocturnal scenes in the forest. Needless to say there is no shortage of excitement and spinetingling theatrical effects and the witch's long-awaited appearance is staged very dramatically and not without comedy.
