Kinderchor der Deutschen Oper Berlin
The Children’s Choir of the Deutsche Oper Berlin was founded in 2008. In 2013 the choir was expanded to include a youth choir (Junger Chor) and today comprises over 150 children and teenagers. Since its first appearance in “Carmen” in 2009, the choir has sung all children’s choir parts in productions at Deutsche Oper Berlin. In addition to an extensive Romantic opera repertoire, a special focus is on the development of works of modern musical theatre. The children’s choir also has a very active concert schedule. In addition to concerts with conductors such as GMD Sir Donald Runnicles and Zubin Metha in the Berlin Philharmonie, the choir has performed at the Salzburg Festival and in South Africa. In its own innovative concert formats, the children’s choir spans a wide range of works from the Baroque to contemporary music.
