Singing in the Chorus

There are many ways at the Deutsche Oper Berlin for budding singers to get actively involved in opera and concerts. With a roll of approx. 150 active singers, the Children’s and Youth Chorus is an important constituent of the Deutsche Oper Berlin. Chorus master Christian Lindhorst is the contact person for queries and registrations.

Contact: lindhorst@deutscheoperberlin.de / +49 [30]-343 84 479

The Children’s Chorus of the Deutsche Oper Berlin is sponsored by Berliner Volksbank and Dobolino e. V. [the support association for the Children’s Chorus of the Deutsche Oper Berlin]

  • Mini Chorus (6 – 10)

    For children aged 6 to 10

    This is the place for singing fans to have fun learning how to use their voice. They will learn simple pieces of song for short performances, e.g. as part of the annual Christmas carol singing, and be sensitively introduced to opera literature designed for children’s choruses.

  • Children's Chorus (8 – 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. In the season 2016/2017, the Children's Chorus will singing in productions of CARMEN, BILLY BUDD, HÄNSEL AND GRETEL, LA BOHEME, TOSCA, TURANDOT PARSIFAL and DAS RHEINGOLD. Voice coaches: Rosemarie Arzt, Saskia Klumpp, Natali Buck, Andrea Schwarzbach, Christian Lindhorst Carers / supervisors: Juliane Menzel, Tanja Wagner, Helga Müller-Hau
  • 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.

  • Youth Chorus (16+)

    For teenagers aged 13 to 18

    If you’re too old for the Children’s Chorus but not quite an adult, then you need an alternative to Mum’s church choir or Dad’s male voice chorus. If you would like to get involved in the Youth Chorus, you should bring with you some experience of choir singing and be available for Thursday rehearsals starting at 18.00.
