Wiener Staatsoper Opera School

Carmen, La Bohème or Tosca – you name it; the children’s chorus will add pizazz to the performance. Wiener Staatsoper offers talented children aged 8 and up a first taste of life at the opera.

On about 50 evenings throughout the season, the Opera School students step into the limelight on the big opera stage. Be it the street urchins in Carmen and La Bohème, Charlotte’s siblings in Werther, altar boys and girls in Tosca, Baron Ochs’ alleged children in Der Rosenkavalier, to name but a few. Opera School students also perform outside the opera, enhancing their scope of experience.
