The Advent Concert of the Staatsoper’s Children’s Choir has become a treasured tradition; in conjunction with performances by the Staatskapelle Berlin, the annual December programme puts the crowd in the Christmas spirit. Alongside well-known Christmas songs and carols from around Europe, this year’s programme features a 1908 work by the French conductor-composer Gabriel Piernés, »The Children at Bethlehem«, which tells the nativity story with vivid lustre and melodic imagination.
The children's choir of the Staatsoper Unter den Linden is supported by the Living Bauhaus Art Foundation and the Sarias Foundation.
