We want to support teachers in making a visit to the opera with their school class an exciting and enriching excursion for everyone involved. For almost all performances on the main stage and in the Tischlerei, we therefore offer preparatory workshops for school classes that you can book in conjunction with an opera visit. In preparation for the performance, school groups not only learn about the plot of the opera, but at the same time playfully engage with the respective theatre language, the production and the music.

The workshops usually take place at the opera, but it is also possible to visit the school.

Duration 90 minutes

Free of charge
with the exception of the performance
[€ 8,– per ticket]

Sponsorship classes accompany a new production on the main stage or in the Tischlerei.

Before attending a concert or performance, classes with a particular interest in music are given an insight into the rehearsal work of the orchestra. In conversation with the musicians, they learn more about the special features and challenges of their work with music.

In our "Four Wins" instrument presentations, the children get to know four different orchestra instruments up close and can also try them out themselves.

The format "Krawumm" presents the various instruments of the percussion group.

This year, Junge Deutsche Oper begins its TUSCH partnership with the Brüder Grimm Primary School in Berlin Wedding. Theatre teacher Elly Jarvis will accompany the teachers together with pupils for the next three years. This year, she uses performance art and sound experiments to explore the question of money, work and value.

In addition, the children get to know opera and what makes it tick and how much work goes into it: the big stage as well as impressive sets and costumes, music and a big orchestra, opera singers, big emotions and drama and everything else that belongs to a house like the opera.

In a project week, they develop their own artistic project from this.
