The Berlin Circus Opera Lab   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”.
