Tischlerei (our studio):
Welcome to the Tischlerei!
“Encounters“ is not just the title of one of the areas of focus in the Tischlerei this season. Encounters also form a prominent part of our entire programme. In a former lifetime the Tischlerei was the workshop of the Deutsche Oper Berlin; now it is a space for experimental performances and installations, world premieres and works in progress. We embrace crossover, blend pop, rock, fine art, avant-garde and opera and explore themes centring on ‘the stranger’ and otherness in general. This regularly involves contacts between cultures leading to the generation of new forms of musical theatre. You are cordially invited to witness all these encounters close at hand.
Let us surprise you, Dorothea Hartmann, Art Director, Tischlerei

Jazz & Lyrics: Words and Sounds
Rilke wrote his essay "Primal Sound" in 1919, and it is now 100 years old. This is reason enough to trace Rilke's relationship with music and the sounds of his words. To imagine alongside Rilke how, for example, the graphic transfer of the coronal suture of the human skull to a phonograph may sound, and what is the primal sound within us all .. With famous actor, singer and entertainer Ilja Richter.

Samuel Penderbayne: The Snow Queen
With humour and awe Brigitte Dethier (photo) and Samuel Penderbayne will tell a road-trip movie together: musical flowers, a croaking clarinet, a tuba reindeer and the eerily beautiful synthesiser world of the Snow Queen are just a few ingredients in this musical theatre in which the children experience the story up close.

Wolf's Glen – Wolfsschlucht
Beginning with Friedrich Kind's FREISCHÜTZ libretto and Weber's music, composer Malte Giesen and director Paul-Georg Dittrich address the dark sides of our desires. Seven bullets are promised to Max, and the musical theatre evening at the Tischlerei has seven stations. With three singers, children's choir, two horns, piano and electronic music, the aggregate states of rage, grief, fear and hope are made tangible.
