In cooperation with the Karl SchlechtFoundation
the Komische Oper Berlin has developed a musical theater education project that gives children from underserved areas in Berlin a chance to visit the opera and be inspired by the artform.
Participating school classes engage in workshop format with the musical and dramatic content of the children’s opera The Wizard of Oz
. They subsequently visit a performance of the opera with their teachers and exchange experiences and impressions in a concluding talk.
The audio book CD The Wizard of Oz
published by speak low will also be integrated into the project.
