Welcome

Dear friends of the rigorously contemporary,

Dear friends of the rigorously contemporary,

The Tischlerei used to be a workshop of the Deutsche Oper Berlin, today it is a space for experiments and installations, for world premieres and play creations. We mix avant-garde, pop, rock, visual arts and opera, work across genres, deal with "the foreign". Different cultures always come together to reinvent music theatre. We cordially invite you to follow all these encounters ... Let us surprise you, Yours, Dorothea Hartmann (Artistic Director of the Tischlerei)

From the ambush: orchestral karaoke and farewell procession

Who owns the stage of the Deutsche Oper Berlin? With this last edition of the series AUS DEM HINTERHALT under the motto MACHT DER KÜNSTE we invite you to a big orchestra karaoke happening in the Tischlerei. Special guests on stage this time, besides familiar faces from six years of HINTERHALT and singers from our ensemble, are you, dear audience! The greatest hits from the opera repertoire, from pop, rock and jazz - from Wagner to the Beatles, from Puccini to Bilderbuch - will be sung to specially written orchestral arrangements. Afterwards, we will look back on six years of HINTERHALT in a festive farewell procession and carry the hand, the iconic symbol of the power of the arts, into the city.

Karaoper: A karaoke opera film performance by Chez Company for children aged 8+.

What if we could change the world? A future with fun, with clean seas and crystal clear blue skies, a world where justice prevails, where we can still travel and be with others from other countries ...? In the specially invented KARAOPER we want to dream together with children. The KARAOPER is an opera film that first gets its direction through karaoke - through singing and speaking. A wild community that playfully jumps to the next level by setting the right tone ...

New Scenes VI

The competition, organised as a collaboration between the Deutsche Oper and the Hanns Eisler Academy of Music, was and is primarily intended as a laboratory for the future. It is explicitly aimed at teams of composers and authors. The three new music theatre works of approximately 30 minutes in length are created with students of the Hanns Eisler Academy, who stage, play and sing them.

Bear

The starting point of the experimental music theatre is Nastassja Martin's novel "Believing in the Wild": on a research trip in the Siberian wilderness, the anthropologist encounters a bear that bites her in the face and seriously injures her: This is the beginning of a transformation: the boundaries blur, she is half human, half bear - an in-between being in which worlds implode. The multi-perspective evening links Nastassja Martin's narrative and Berlin city history from the bear's point of view into a dense compositional web. BÄR*IN is a hybrid evening about metamorphoses and an invitation to consider our world as a structure in which not only humans are active agents ... Production: Franziska Angerer

The Tischlerei: home of our children's theatre

The neverending story

The paradoxical thing about childhood is that it survives well into adulthood. This is why grown-ups relate emotionally to their own childhood and to different degrees – perhaps to a stronger degree if they are closely involved with children in their capacity as parent, grandparent or teacher. Childhood is wedged in our adult lives like the tiny splinter wedged in Kay’s heart in the SNOW QUEEN (back in winter 2022) fairy tale.
