Semperoper Aktiv!

The Semperoper Dresden offers hands-on access to music theatre. All our formats are designed to enable active participation: in some cases, audience members have the chance to slip into a role, in others they are encouraged to “just” watch and listen. Semperoper Aktiv! is aimed at individuals with no experience of musical theatre as well as those who have already dipped their toes into this exciting art, whether as spectators or performers. Our intention is to whet your appetite for more! To this end, we offer a range of events for school classes and their teachers as well as for kids of all ages and young adults.

Need advice, have some questions or want to take part?

We look forward to hearing from you.
