The Children's choir of Staatsoper Unter den Linden has proven its worth as a reliable musical partner of the opera house and of other institutions in Berlin and further afield. It offers a well-founded musical training for its young singers who meet twice a week to study and rehearse the children's choir parts of the operas La bohème, Un ballo in maschera, Tosca, Turandot, Boris Godunov, Pique Dame, Der Rosenkavalier, Carmen, Der gestiefelte Kater or of the ballet Der Nussknacker as well as the current concert repertoire. Three voice and choir instructors look after the vocal training.

In the 2007/2008 season Vinzenz Weissenburger became the leader of the children's choir. Since then he has been expanding the choir's fields of work and its public profile. In addition to regular performances on the opera stage, the choir gives concerts in the Staatsoper and during guest performances in Germany and abroad e.g. in Dresden, Hamburg, Italy, France and the Baltic states. Additionally, working in cooperation with orchestras like Berliner Philharmoniker or Rundfunk-Sinfonieorchester, gives the ensemble its own artistic identity. Just two years after its launch the Children's choir was awarded a prize in the Berlin National choir competition.

The Children's choir of Staatsoper Unter den Linden is always on the lookout for boys aged over 7 years old with a good singing voice. The ability to play an instrument is appreciated. Their regular performances on stage and in concert and the pedagogic work in the workshops or on weekend trips create a close link between the children and classical music and of course the opera.
