We want to belong, yet we feel excluded. We are part of the crowd, looking at other people. And at times we feel like outsiders in our own lives. What’s behind this feeling of alienness? And what things connect us?
The Young Opera section takes a number of different perspectives in the 2016/17 season, exploring the tension between the individual and the group. In “Something I’ve always wanted to say”, its autumn holiday project, young Berliners and refugees look at commonalities in their lives and the young inhabitants of Blomagalgre investigate why entire groups often get labelled as such and such on the basis of a single characteristic. In “What Are You Dreaming About?”, the Winter Holiday Music Lab, we will be giving vent to our visions and celebrating encounters between some very different [musical] cultures at the STURMFREI! Intercultural Music Festival.
The Young Opera section is everywhere - in schools, kindergartens, youth clubs and refugee centres, in the Tischlerei and on the main stage. And everywhere it goes it’s involved in lively musical theatre, exciting concerts and projects for all. We look forward to meeting you and together discovering what we’re capable of in the 2016/17 season!
