Get involved! Workshops & Clubs

Don’t just watch musical theatre; make musical theatre. In our workshops and projects children, teenagers and families are active onstage and backstage. Young Opera provides everyone with a stage! For our projects and productions we want your stories and experiences, your ideas and opinions – onstage and behind the scenes. In our family workshops and tours, our generational performances and our children-friendly open day families can experience musical theatre together at discount rates.

Opera Mice (6+)

 

A year of discovering opera

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 20 September 2019 onwards.

One-off fee of € 20,- [Places are limited.]

In a fur costume

"I came to Berlin from Afghanistan, and first lived in a hotel with other refugees. There we got a flyer from a project by the Junge Deutsche Oper. At first I didn't really know what theatre is, but I understood during the workshop. Once I was a wolf in a fur costume, and the kids were really scared! My German has gotten much better since I started doing theatre. I love speaking in front of a lot of people. This year I even became a student representative."

Hessam Alawuddin is 17 and has participated in a number of projects by the Junge Deutsche Oper, such as in the Jugendclub.

Understand yourself! (14 – 18)

New youth production with Berlin teenagers

Be loud! Our new youth production finds 30-50 youngsters teaming up with artists to make themselves heard. And also to explore what it is to listen. Who actually has something to say? What do the things that excite us sound like, and who do we show the result to? Since 2015, a transcultural, participatory production has been mounted annually, with a motley bunch of young people spending a number of weeks developing a work of musical theatre, to be presented in the Tischlerei.

Dramaturgy Kristina Stang, Jörg Königsdorf
With 30-50 youngsters
