A production of the Deutsche Oper Berlin in cooperation with the Kinder Ballett Kompanie Berlin

About the performance

For over a hundred years, Peter Pan, the boy who never grows up, has been one of the best-known characters in children's literature. Generations of children have spun out the adventures that Peter, his girlfriend Wendy, the pirate captain Hook and the fairy Tinkerbell experience in their imagination and dreamed of one day being able to roam the island of Neverland themselves.

David Simic, the director and choreographer of the Kinder Ballett Kompanie, has also been fascinated by "Peter Pan" since he saw a ballet version of the story in his hometown of Belgrade as a child. Now he has developed a version for the main stage of the Deutsche Oper Berlin in which the children and young people themselves embody the heroes and villains of the fairytale adventure story.

To the music of Edvard Grieg's "Peer Gynt" and Alexander Glasunov's "Raymonda", about 50 children and young people between the ages of 6 and 18 can be seen in a variety of roles in "Children Dance: Peter Pan". The costumes were designed by the internationally award-winning costume designer Angelina Atlagic, who has worked for the Staatsballett Berlin, the Bolshoi Theatre, the Compania Nacional de Danza in Madrid and the Greek National Theatre, among others.

Advent Calendar in the Foyer: The 2nd Door

Today in the foyer: The Small and Large Chorus of the Children's Chorus sings Christmas carols
17.00 hrs / Rank foyer on the right
Duration: approx. 25 minutes / free admission

Around 150 active singers make up our Children's Chorus, which is an important and heavily involved ensemble partner in numerous operas. Its members come together at least twice a week to make music under the direction of Christian Lindhorst. In its performances and concerts on stage, in the Chamber Music Hall of the Philharmonie or at other events, the Children's Chorus of the Deutsche Oper Berlin spans the spectrum from baroque to modern.

In the course of the 2022/23 season, the children and young people aged 9 to 16 will appear on the stage of the house in CARMEN, LA BOHÈME, TOSCA and TURANDOT as well as in the new production of MATTHEW PASSION. And on 18 December 2022, the chorus will take a trip to St. Paul the Apostle Church in Schöneberg, where it will join the Kammersymphonie Berlin for a Christmas programme "In dulci jubilo" with works by Michael Haydn, Johannes Brahms, Michael Praetorius and Gottfried August Homilius, among others.

Today's programme includes Advent and Christmas carols such as "Jetzt ist wieder Weihnacht da" or "Lied von den Schneeflocken".

The children's chorus is sponsored by Dobolino e.V. and Engel & Völkers.
