fest des kindes / children's festival
Raise the curtain for our smallest friends of the festival! Kids aged from 6 to 11 can explore their own creativity - painting and building props and costumes, singing and dancing - and have loads of fun in the process, which is what the children's festival is all about. The festival culminates in a musical, where the kids can proudly present the fruits of their week's work.

An impressive stage set towers out of the lake; the opera house is a hive of activity. What actually goes on behind the scenes? What artistic and technical secrets are there to be disclosed? A guided tour behind the scenes reveals what is concealed from the audience (free of charge for kids aged 10 and younger, for youth groups and school classes). A tour can be very conveniently combined with a crossculture workshop.
|31 May - 18 August
In the crossculture workshops, school kids from 9 years onwards slip into the roles of Mozart's best-known work The Magic Flute. Together with his companion Papageno, Prince Tamino sets off on a dangerous mission to the palace of sun priest Sarastro. With their practical theatrical approach, the members of "Der Opernschlüssel" offer insights into the drama, the music and the background of an opera that's full of myths and secrets.
