Babykonzert © Stephan Bögel
Concerts for babies? Why not? The savouring of music, the enjoyment of sounds both new and familiar, the urge to move in time to the beats… these are as present in the first months and years of life as they are in older children and adults. That's why we are inviting tots up to 2 years of age to the Tischlerei to experience their first ever concert. On a floor strewn with cushions and blankets the little ones are free to spend half an hour, with their parents, crawling and romping with a diverse programme of music as an acoustic backdrop.
4, 5, 6, 20, 21, 22 December 2018 / All information can be found in our schedule

Adventssingen in der Tischlerei © Stephan Bögel
Advent Weekend we gather in the Tischlerei, make ourselves comfy on cushions and get everyone in the mood for the most atmospheric and contemplative festival of the year. Alternating with the loveliest of Advent stories, we run through our favourite Yuletide evergreens, accompanied by the Orchestra's musicians. Why is it that Christmas comes but once a year?

Kinder- und Jugendchor der Deutschen Oper Berlin © Stefan Bögel
With its 150 singers, the Children’s and Youth Chorus of the Deutsche Oper Berlin is an established element of the opera house’s ensemble. Children and teenagers are given music and vocal coaching in chorus groups appropriate to their age group. The aim is for the youngsters to appear onstage alongside professional singers and demonstrate their proficiency in concerts – a tradition that is set to continue during the 2018/2019 season, with the chorus participating in WOZZECK, TOSCA, THE NUTCRACKER, THE CUNNING LITTLE VIXEN, CARMEN, BORIS GODUNOV, PARSIFAL, OTELLO and other works.
Aside from the opera performances at the Deutsche Oper, all chorus groups will also appear at other venues in Berlin and further afield. Our youngest singers, who make up the Mini Chorus, are already preparing for their Christmas carol concerts and other events. The Children’s Chorus, the Concert Chorus, the Voice Changers [a young male-voice chorus] and the Youth Chorus give concerts covering a spectrum ranging from Renaissance songs to contemporary material.
The anniversary concert marks the first 10 years of the Children’s Chorus and the 5th birthday of the Youth Chorus.
