The Café is open from 10.30 – 13.30. 

Sing with the children’s choir

For children aged 6-9 who like to sing, without parents.

“Opera DåNuSen”

Course on views of the performing arts, for young people aged 13–16. 

Opera, dance, musicals, costume design, equipment... What actually happens in an opera house? “Opera DåNuSen” (The Opera then and now) is an inspiring series of meetings with discussions and exercises where you learn more about all the art forms to be found in the building, and how they are created. How have the performing arts evolved through history, and what do you think they will be like in the future? Who decides what is “good” and who gets to do what on the stage? Each session lasts about 1.5 hours. It is fine to come to individual sessions. Limited places available, booking essential. 

Meet at 11.30 outside the Opera Shop in the Foyer
