About the performance

Dancing to electronic music in the opera house? At the Playground Festival this is possible when the Deutsche Oper Berlin is once again transformed into a club for one night only on 25 August. After the successful first edition in the summer of 2022, the festival centre is now on the main stage: opera backdrops out, loudspeakers in and the heart of the Deutsche Oper Berlin becomes a dance floor. Three hip acts bring handmade, rousing techno sound and show that electronic music and classical-acoustic instruments, club culture and opera can form a perfect symbiosis. Best of all: no queuing, no stressful outfit choices and no "hard door" – everyone is welcome.

Playground Festival 2023 Line-Up

Brandt Brauer Frick
With Brandt Brauer Frick, the forefathers of handmade techno music are the main act of the festival this year. Since the band was founded in 2008, the three musicians have dedicated themselves to the utopia of combining classical and club music. With success: the magic of their live show captivates both sceptics of electronically generated music and equally convinces the most dedicated ravers. In the meantime, Brandt Brauer Frick have performed in various line-ups at over 400 concerts in more than 40 countries, in clubs, classical concert halls and at the world's biggest festivals. For the Deutsche Oper Berlin, the trio will play a hand-curated set of well-known hits and tracks from their new album "Multi Faith Prayer Room".

Ameli Paul
The Berlin electronic duo Ameli Paul already enchanted the audience at the last edition of the Playground Festival: with their fusion of stirring beats, dreamy soundscapes and catchy tunes, the two exceptional musicians are now known far beyond Berlin. In their musical playground, synthesizers, field recordings, vocals and guitars unite to create moving musical songwriting that invites you to dive in and get lost. Ameli, a classically trained singer and award-winning jazz musician, and Paul, an accomplished producer of electronic music, merge styles with relish and find their very own musical expression. They have their multi-layered debut album "Echoes of Memoria", released in 2022, with them.

Fresh and playful sound is brought by Océane from Paris, who closes the evening with her set. In her adopted home of Berlin, the French-born DJ gives full rein to her joy of making people dance and regularly spins in hip clubs such as Sisyphos, Mensch Maier and Kater Blau. Océane tells stories in her carefully arranged sets, sharpens our auditory senses and invites us to dance and dream. Her sound between downtempo, deep house and organic-electronic music brings a touch of French to the Deutsche Oper and takes us on a happy and psychedelic journey.

Adventskalender im Foyer: Das 7. Fensterchen

Today in the foyer: "Now Christmas is here again"
with the small choir of the children's chorus, Rosemarie Arzt and Jisu Park
5.00 p.m. / Parquet foyer
Duration: approx. 25 minutes / free admission

Before joining the large children's and youth chorus of the Deutsche Oper Berlin, the basics of choral singing must be learnt from the ground up. That's why there's the small chorus in the children's chorus. Here, under the expert direction of Rosemarie Arzt, children between the ages of 6 and 10 practise and learn to sing. Today you can experience the smallest of the little ones with their Advent and Christmas programme and songs such as "Jetzt ist wieder Weihnacht da" or "Lied von den Schneeflocken".

Around 150 active singers make up our children's chorus, which is an important and heavily involved ensemble partner in numerous operas. The members come together at least twice a week to make music under the direction of Christian Lindhorst. Over the course of the 2023/24 season, the children and young people aged between 9 and 16 have performed in CARMEN, PAGLIACCI, LA BOHÈME, MATTHÄUS-PASSION, HÄNSEL UND GRETEL, PARSIFAL, PIQUE DAME, TOSCA and TURANDOT. Since last season, choral soloists from the children's and youth choir have also sung the part of the three boys in performances of DIE ZAUBERFLÖTE. In external performances and concerts at venues such as the Chamber Music Hall of the Philharmonie, the children's chorus of Deutsche Oper Berlin covers a range from baroque to modern. On 17 December 2023, the chorus will perform Johann Sebastian Bach's "Christmas Oratorio" together with the Kammersymphonie Berlin at the Apostel-Paulus-Kirche in Schöneberg. Two solo sopranos - Erik Kellner and Klara Gothe - are cast from the choir's own ranks!

The children's chorus is sponsored by Dobolino e.V.
