Introduction & Follow-Up Talk

It is very important to us that the theatre visit for your school class is not a dry compulsory programme but an exciting pleasure. For this reason, we offer a theatre education programme to accompany our productions:
Upon request, you will receive an age-appropriate introduction to the play before your visit to the performance. Dramaturges or theatre pedagogy colleagues will inform you about important facts about the production and the special features of the production concept.

Directly after the performance, we can clarify open questions about the production in a follow-up discussion with the pupils and discuss them with the artists of the production.
Information and registration (at least two weeks in advance) at:

Opera & School Day

You want to know what an opera is and how it is created? In conversation with the directing team, you will learn more about the music, content and concept of our major opera premieres.

We invite you to participate and try out in workshops: In role studies you get to know the most important main protagonists, their character traits and impulses for action and look analytically at their musical implementation. Afterwards you will get an insight into the rehearsals and can watch a stage orchestra rehearsal.

Musikalische Schnupperstunde in Schule und Kindergarten

Musical taster lesson in school and kindergarten

To get to know the orchestral instruments better, our musicians*girls visit the pupils*girls for a music lesson of a special kind: we tell them something about the creation, construction and functioning of the instruments, explore the various sounds together with the pupils*girls and demonstrate technical tricks, including, of course, small musical examples. And then there is plenty of time to ask questions and even try out a few instruments.

We individually adapt this offer to the different class levels, from kindergarten upwards. The perfect complement to a concert visit and for instrument lessons!

Trial lessons are free of charge. The dates will be arranged individually according to your and our time possibilities.



Rhapsody in school

For many years, the DNT and the Staatskapelle Weimar have been participating in this project by sending the musicians* of the Staatskapelle Weimar or world-famous soloists* of the symphony concerts to schools.

Starting with the 2019/20 season, the project is to be extended to include opera. In connection with a performance visit, we will visit you in the classroom.

lease contact us if you are interested in the project. We would be happy to advise you which opera visit would be the right one for your class. The project is financially supported by the Deutsche Bank Foundation.

Find out more about the project »Rhapsody goes opera«.



Rehearsal visit - right in the middle of the music

Some of our rehearsals are open to young concert goers*. One class may be present at a time when the Staatskapelle Weimar is preparing for a concert - may experience how music grows together and begins to live. The pupils* sit in the middle of the orchestra.


Rehearsal visits are free of charge. The dates will be arranged individually according to your and our time possibilities.



For selected plays, we provide you with material folders for the preparation and follow-up of a theatre visit, which you can receive by e-mail on request.
