Wagner for Children

Wagner and His Operas for Children and Families

A swan signet marks information points especially for children. Seeing what school utensils looked like in the 19th century or finding out what tools a composer used to draw his staves is also interesting for adults.

You can playfully try out the simple tools of the 19th century that helped to bring events on stage to life. Wagner played a significant part in this. The sound of the sea can be imitated using a ball-loaded drum box.

Wagner for Kids – Children's Opera

"Wagner for Kids" transforms operatic epics lasting several hours into child-friendly versions. The one-hour children's versions are accompanied by music journalist Norma Strunden and pianist Irina Roden. They give an introduction to the story and illustrate what is happening.

So you always know what's going on and can enjoy the performance. A children's choir sings the highlights of the operas – an opera by children for children. Most impressive for the parents and children present are the trained singers of the world-famous Semperoper Dresden. An unforgettable experience for every opera novice.
