Since the 2012/13 season, the »opera dolmuş« (the name is a play on the description for the group taxis typical of Turkey) minibus has been taking singers and musicians from the Komische Oper Berlin on regular visits to institutes in city districts with a high percentage of residents from all manner of cultural backgrounds, in order to locally present a condensed, acting- and music-based journey through 500 years of operatic history. To complement this project, the »opera dolmuş for children« was founded in 2014. Its programme is aimed at a young audiences (and their families), and is performed at schools, parents' cafés and intercultural family centres.
During the 2018/19 season, the opera dolmuş forchildren will be visiting Berlin’s neighbourhoods with a freshly composed children’s chamber opera.
