A competition for young composers of opera? In the ten years since the NEW SCENES format had its debut in the Tischlerei of the Deutsche Oper Berlin, that is still something of a special event. Winning a competition is a crucial step in the professional career of a musician, conductor or student of direction, but NEW SCENES has always been more than that. This competition, organised jointly by the Deutsche Oper Berlin and the Hanns Eisler School of Music Berlin, was conceived as, and remains, primarily an experimental laboratory for young artists, an opportunity for budding talent not just to discover their individual musical signatures but to test new avenues of artistic collaboration in the complex métier of musical theatre. As such, the NEW SCENES competition was expressly aimed at teams of composers and writers, each working closely to produce a 30-minute work of musical theatre, which is then staged, acted and sung by students of the Hanns Eisler School.

The value of this kind of work experience in the field of contemporary musical theatre – and the attendant prestige of the competition – can be evinced from the steadily growing number of applications from around the world. The three winners of the sixth edition were whittled down from a total of 119 entries. And the countries of origins of the three selected teams alone are a testimony to the unchecked fascination that the musical-theatre genre continues to exert on young artists. Iranian composer Sina Fina Sani is now set to partner up with Berlin author Franziska vom Heede, Germán Alonso from Spain with the Italian librettist Fabrizio Funari and the Lithuanian composer Juta Pranulytė with Giulia Fornasier of Italy.

The visit of Father Christmas is a cherished tradition at the Advent Calendar of the Deutsche Oper Berlin. This time we encourage our younger guests to get active themselves and share with us their favourite experiences from the past year. While enchanting music plays and Father Christmas is sure to have a sweet or two in his luggage, we invite you to take part in a small interactive activity. This year, our Father Christmas will be accompanied by the young Italian soprano Elisa Verzier.

In 2016 she made her debut at the Teatro Verdi di Trieste in Mendelssohn's EIN SOMMERNACHTSTRAUM and as Serpina in Paisiello's LA SERVA PADRONA. Her church music repertoire includes Mozart's "Coronation Mass", Handel's "Messiah", John Rutter's "Mass of the Children" and several pieces by Pergolesi, Schubert and Bach. Elisa Verzier has won numerous competitions. Her next engagements include Norina / DON PASQUALE in Trieste and La Contessa / LA SCUOLA DEI GELOSI in Turin. In the 2022/23 season she is engaged as a scholarship holder of the Förderkreis in the ensemble of the Deutsche Oper Berlin, where she will sing Pamina / DIE ZAUBERFLÖTE, Marzelline / FIDELIO, Frasquita / CARMEN, Musetta / LA BOHÈME and Zerlina / DON GIOVANNI, among others.
