The scholarship of the Patrons of the Deutsche Oper Berlin e. V. enables up to 5 young singers of all nations (not older than 30) to get to know the work processes at an ensemble of an opera house. The scholarship holders can work with coaches at the Deutsche Oper and can perform on stage in mostly smaller parts, according to the needs.
The stipend usually begins on 1 September of the respective calendar year, and ends on 30 June of the following year. The monthly stipend currently amounts to € 1,550.00 and is paid in this amount with no deductions. Because the stipend does not fulfil the requirements for tax exemption as per § 3 no. 44 EstG (Income Tax Act) according to the current legal concept of the fiscal authorities, we explicitly state that the beneficiary is obligated to file this income and state it in their personal income tax statement. The Deutsche Oper Berlin will pay an additional € 1,000.00 gross per month for appearances in opera performances.
