Opera Lab & Dance Lab

Participatory children's and youth projects at the Kulturhaus Brotfabrik

Feel opera and ballet, touch it, do it yourself: In our participatory programmes, children, teenagers and young adults have the opportunity to experience ballet and music theatre together with professionals from the Vienna State Opera, whether in the city, in your district. Digitally or on site at the Vienna State Opera. The focus is on your creative ideas, topics that move you and your desire and courage to try something new. Our formats are aimed both at curious people who want to get to know the world of opera and ballet better and at theatre enthusiasts who can't get enough.

Opera Lab

This is where music is made, scenic improvisation takes place and discussions take place: In the opera laboratory, youths and young adults aged 15-24 develop their own music theatre performance inspired by selected themes from the programme. This will be performed at the end of the season in cooperation with the Superar Orchestra and the Vienna State Opera Stage Orchestra at the Kulturhaus Brotfabrik. Special highlights: Visits by professional artists and joint opera visits to the Vienna State Opera.
