About the performance

Imagine what it would be like if we could change the world. Imagine a fun future with clean oceans and lovely blue skies, a world of justice for all, where it’s ok to travel and meet people from other countries. In our innovative KARAOPER we want to dream along with the kids.

KARAOPER is an operatic film that generates its own direction in gradual steps using the karaoke process, through the medium of singing and speaking. A motley community of kids progressing in jolly fashion to the next level, so harmonious and supportive of one another that a happy end is the only possible outcome. A modern fairytale, narrated in song by and for children, which won’t change the world but which illuminates the issues of our age and uses music to explore them in a simple, creative and playful way.

Following THE MAKING OF BLONDE, this is Chez Company’s second project at the Deutsche Oper Berlin: KARAOPER is a collaboration between the artistic directors of Chez Company – Gesine Danckwart, Fabian Kühlein and Sabrina Zwach –, composers Thomas Kürstner and Sebastian Vogel, set designer Julia Hansen, members of the Deutsche Oper Berlin choruses and many children.

The visit of Father Christmas is a cherished tradition at the Advent Calendar of the Deutsche Oper Berlin. This time we encourage our younger guests to get active themselves and share with us their favourite experiences from the past year. While enchanting music plays and Father Christmas is sure to have a sweet or two in his luggage, we invite you to take part in a small interactive activity. This year, our Father Christmas will be accompanied by the young Italian soprano Elisa Verzier.

In 2016 she made her debut at the Teatro Verdi di Trieste in Mendelssohn's EIN SOMMERNACHTSTRAUM and as Serpina in Paisiello's LA SERVA PADRONA. Her church music repertoire includes Mozart's "Coronation Mass", Handel's "Messiah", John Rutter's "Mass of the Children" and several pieces by Pergolesi, Schubert and Bach. Elisa Verzier has won numerous competitions. Her next engagements include Norina / DON PASQUALE in Trieste and La Contessa / LA SCUOLA DEI GELOSI in Turin. In the 2022/23 season she is engaged as a scholarship holder of the Förderkreis in the ensemble of the Deutsche Oper Berlin, where she will sing Pamina / DIE ZAUBERFLÖTE, Marzelline / FIDELIO, Frasquita / CARMEN, Musetta / LA BOHÈME and Zerlina / DON GIOVANNI, among others.
