In front of, on or behind the stage: Junge Oper and Tanz mit! invite young people with school and extracurricular projects to help shape the fascinating world of music theatre and dance through creative experience and their own forms of expression. The UFO makes music theatre in the neighbourhood for young and old and develops participatory music theatre formats together with people from Düsseldorf and Duisburg.

Junge Oper am Rhein

The Junge Oper am Rhein is characterised by a varied programme for children, young people, young adults and families. The stage programme consists of the large children's operas presented on the two stages in Duisburg and Düsseldorf, as well as smaller foyer productions and mobile productions for daycare centres or for primary schools. Another focus of the Junge Oper is on music theatre and dance projects for different age groups and extensive educational offers for the opera productions in the repertoire.

UFO – Junge Oper Urban

Participatory Music Theatre by and with Young and Old
Music theatre rethought, close and excitingly told - all this and much more can be seen in the mobile venue of the Deutsche Oper am Rhein, conceived and designed by the architectural office raumlabor berlin, made possible by the "Neue Wege" funding programme of the NRW KULTURsekretariat Wuppertal.

The UFO is a real eye-catcher, a research station and a musical sound laboratory. It wants to be a place of encounter and cooperate with local actors to invent music theatre together.

Tanz mit!

One thing is certain: we all dance! Every culture in the world has developed its own way of dancing and passed it down through the centuries as an intangible heritage. But which dance form is closest to us personally - ballet or break dance, plié or paso doble? When does dancing pull us out of our chairs?

At Ballett am Rhein we dance with passion and we have one big request: dance with us!

The colleagues from Junge Oper, UFO and Tanz mit! will be happy to help and advise you on any questions you may have about what is on offer for schools and families.
