Junges Ensemble

Founded in the summer of 2012, the “Junge Ensemble” of the Neukölln Opera develops its own music theatre productions around themes of current interest. With the Musical Quartet (conducted by Tanja Schmitz), which they wrote and composed themselves, the project presented itself as Berlin’s first continuously working music theatre formation on the stage of the Neuköllner Oper in June 2013. 2014 followed under the direction of Lisa Brüning (until May 2014) and Nadine Boos Weißgekleidete hässliche Kinder machen einen Ausflug with performances in the Neuköllner Opera, the Alte Feuerwache and at the Festival Klubszene. This was followed by Odyssée d’Orléans – the d’Arc Knight Returns (2015) and Puccini Cappuccini (2016), both with texts by Felix Kracke and the ensemble and music by Michael Bellmann, directed by Nadine Boos, as well as: Mea Culpa Massaker, a play by the Young Ensemble of the Neuköllner Opera with Felix Kracke (text), Yuval Halpern (music) and Nadine Boos (direction) (premiere 14.6.2017). Recently on stage: Orpheus optimal, Musiktheater des Jungen Ensembles der Neuköllner Oper by Yuval Halpern (music), Felix Krakau (text), Bjørn de Wildt (director), Gwendolyn Noltes (costume), Franziska Korte (production management)
