Join in! Opera & Leisure - Deutsche Oper Berlin

Our afternoon, weekend and holiday offerings give children, teenagers and families an opportunity to try stuff out and pursue their own creative ideas. We provide you with almost boundless scope to discover new skills, develop existing talents, probe new realms of self-identity and find a platform from which to express your own art! In our workshops artists and drama teachers go about the task of reinventing, with you, the world of musical theatre. 

Current announcements, dates, offers and recommendations are announced via our website, the regularly published newsletters "Family" and "Youth" and via Instagram. Stay informed!

The "Stabat Mater" is one of the central religious texts of the West and has been the basis of many musical settings. The text tells of Mary's grief for her crucified son Jesus. The version by Estonian composer Arvo Pärt is a central component of the project, which will now be performed in the Tischlerei of the Deutsche Oper Berlin. 

The production is a collaboration between the Junge Deutsche Oper and the Junges RambaZamba Theater, in which an ensemble of 27 young people from a wide range of backgrounds with and without disabilities worked together for several months.

The young people will present the results of their work in the form of their own musical theatre production in the Tischlerei of the Deutsche Oper Berlin on 5, 6 and 7 April 2024.

Further Information


"Stabat Mater" is funded by "Zur Bühne", the support programme of the German Stage Association within the framework of "Kultur macht stark. Alliances for Education".




In our children's club, the participating children become researchers who explore the mini-verse of opera and its surroundings. What is that big opera spaceship hovering in Charlottenburg's neighbourhood? Who are the people who work in this spaceship or live next to it? We will collect stories, sounds and melodies and use them to create a listening experience that we will present before the summer break.

Dates from September 
Wednesdays from 16.30-18.30.

Participation is free of charge.

The children's club is supported by Arend and Brigitte Oetker.

Our opera family project is aimed at families with children who have not yet experienced opera. Children, parents, grandparents - and whoever else is part of the family - have the opportunity to experience rehearsal visits, musical workshops and musical productions together free of charge. In cooperation with your family centre, you will get to know the opera for children in front of and behind the stage.

The programme is aimed at families with children up to 6 years of age.

Participation is free of charge

Supported by the Heinz and Heide Dürr Foundation




Project management Carolin Eichhorst
Music education workshops Christina von Nell and Letizia Massetti

The Opernmäuse ('opera mice') are back and they're taking over the opera house! Looking, listening, learning..., they're peeking behind the scenes, taking tours and workshops, being asked for their impressions at rehearsals of our children's productions and generally peering and probing into every nook and cranny of the Opera. All we can say is: Go for it!
