»Young Opera! Musical Theater for Children between Education and the Stage«
How can we convey to children how much fun musical theater can be? Since 2004 the Komische Oper has produced one children’s opera for the big stage every season. Alongside this production, numerous children’s concerts and workshops take place. With this work, the Komische Oper Berlin is setting the standard for Germany. The book recommends and discusses a child-appropriate repertoire, provides instructions for workshops, and gives practical tips for appropriately handling music and opera materials for different target groups. The book is a well-structured guide for educational work with classical music.
