Our lab has been running in Berlin since 2012 where we have been training young opera singers in the discipline of circus. Many of the singers that have dangled on our trapezes & lyras have gone on to feature in several of our productions throughout the world as well as other high profile international productions including Soap, The Carnival & many more. In our lab we are constantly striving to find new ways of combining circus with opera & are always super excited to meet & work with other like-minded singers. We call the new genre we are creating “Circus Opera”.
For new singers that are interested in learning this art form, we are running our Summer Workshop from June 22 - August 10 2019 @ Katakomen, Berlin Kreuzberg (for further info, scroll down!),

The BERLIN circus opera lab summer workshops
The Berlin Circus Opera Lab will be running workshops for young opera singers (16 +) in the summer of 2019 @ Katakomben in Kreuzburg, Berlin, During the 1.5 hour workshop, singers undergo 30 minutes of cardio & flexibility training followed by 1 hour of aerial training. At the conclusion of this course, singers will be able to combine their skills as an opera singer with their newly developed skills in aerial acrobatics as we stage a small scale “Circus Opera” to the public.
We have been running our lab around the world since 2012 & the skills our singers have developed have gone on to feature in several international productions throughout the world & have helped contribute to the formation of a new genre in Opera .
Our upcoming summer workshops will run from June 22 - August 10 (Saturdays from 3- 4.30pm) 2019 @ Katakomen, Berlin Kreuzberg.
