Children’s opera with Simon Rattle and the Vocal Heroes
To sing together, to awaken the desire to make music – that is the aim of our Education Programme’s Vocal Heroes” project. To this end, Vocal Heroes choirs for children and youths have been founded all over Berlin. Conducted by Simon Rattle, they will now present A trip to the moon, a new children’s opera by Andrew Norman – a fanciful young composer who in his own words loves surprising action such as we are familiar with from television series and video games.
