the content

The question of a possible coexistence of man and machine is at the centre of the robot trilogy by the retro-futuristic duo gamut inc. After OVER THE EDGE CLUB and ROSSUMS UNIVERSAL ROBOTS, they are now transforming the Tischlerei of the Deutsche Oper into a hybrid soundscape with the third part ZEROTH LAW - The Zeroth Law - together with the RIAS Kammerchor and the music machines of the legendary robot orchestra founded by Godfried-Willem Raes at the Stichting Logos in Ghent.

Adventskalender in der Tischlerei: Das 11. Fensterchen

"Ding Dong! Merrily on High"
with the VoiceChangers and Rosemarie Arzt
17.00 h / Tischlerei
Duration: approx. 25 minutes / free admission


Often since primary school, the soloists in today's Advent Window have been members of the children's chorus of the Deutsche Oper Berlin. They have sung in WOZZECK, TOSCA, OTELLO, BORIS GODUNOW, CARMEN, TURANDOT, LA BOHÈME, HÄNSEL UND GRETEL or PARSIFAL. Whereas being in a youth chorus is quite easy for girls up to the higher grades, the boys' voices break at some point. The larynx and vocal folds grow, during which the young singers temporarily lose their previously secure grip on their entire tonal spectrum. In the past, young people were often forced to remain silent until the "new voice" had grown in them. At the Deutsche Oper Berlin, Rosemarie Arzt coaches the rapidly growing voice changer group, which was founded eleven years ago, through this difficult phase. Today they sing Christmas carols, Christmas carols and a cappella versions of well-known "seasonal hits" in the Advent calendar on the foyer stage.
