    Opera Mice (6+)

    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 14 September 2018 onwards.
    One-off fee of € 20,- [Places are limited.]
    Registrations via Ticket Service of the Deutsche Oper Berlin

  • Children’s Club (9 – 12)

    Songs you can’t get out of your head – A performance by the Children’s Club

    Some songs can really get on your nerves. You whirl around, try to flush your ears out, do a cartwheel or a bungee jump, but nothing helps. They’re lodged in your head and won’t be quiet. Some are so stubborn they plague us till the day we die. But there are good ones, too, the ones we like. The ones we hold on to and take care of because they remind us of good times – a school outing, a game of hockey, our first love. And some of those insistent songs can even brighten up the darkest of moods.


    What is it about some songs that make them stick in our minds? And do we have any say in what triggers them and what effect they have on us?


    In recent months members of the Children’s Club have been hard at work in the Catchy Song tailor’s workshop cutting up tunes, cropping texts, triggering memories and ranking beats on the catchiness scale. This is the secret factory where the unforgettable chestnuts – the welcome ones and the annoying ones - are cobbled together before being sent out into the ears of the people.


    It’s not often that the secret workshop opens its doors to the public, and the next chances to get a peek will be on the 22nd and 23rd June 2019. But beware: enter at your own risk!

  • Youth Club (14 – 18)

    Quality Time – A performance by the Youth Club

    There’s never any time. We hardly have time to rehearse for the project. There’s so much to do, what with school, after-hours tutoring, work placements, rehearsals, family. And then again, we have too much time. There’s nothing that we can’t find time for. We’re dead tired. And bored. There are times when we just can’t go on. We’re bored to death. There’s too much to get done. We lie on our beds and time just drags.


    In the youth club we talk about our lives. We’re doing this work-experience project studying other people’s lives - in Berlin and on another continent. We learning about the kind of things that affect their daily routine. What are their options? What decisions do they have to take? We ask things of you and ourselves. How do we spend our time? How do our parents and our audience spend their time? What decisions do we take? What are the best ways to spend our time wisely? And how much time do we have left?
