Opera Camps at the Salzburg Festival

Not only for adults does the Salzburg Festival turn the world of opera on its head! This coming summer, children and young people once again have the opportunity of immersing themselves in the world of opera in one of the well-attended passwort:klassik opera camps.

For each of these one-week camps, the program is based on the program of the Salzburg Festival, and the opera productions performed for an adult audience during the festival are also the focus of the opera camps. Before visiting the rehearsal of the original work, the participants receive an age-appropriate introduction to the piece. Subsequently, dramaturges, stage directors and vocalists provide the young audience with an insight into their work or discuss the production with them.

At the same time, under professional supervision, the camp participants develop a production of the opera of their own. A team of drama teachers, stage directors, set designers, choreographers, musicians, composers and choir directors develop a new concept for each opera camp, which the participants then bring to life with their own ideas, skills and talents. The participants take on several roles – as musicians in the camp orchestra, in the choir, as stage designers or as actors.

For the final performance, the camp participants are joined by musicians of the Vienna Philharmonic. The camps are held in German and English, so that participants must have command of one of these two languages to attend. The participants stay in Arenberg Palace with the entire camp team (without parents).

Registration for the Opera Camps 2019 startet Mitte November.
