Discover Music 

Children and young people can discover and experience the world of music at the Staatstheater in very different ways: With the Children's Opera Choir and the Young State Philharmonic Orchestra, there are two ensembles for children and young people under the roof of the Staatstheater from this season onwards. In cooperation with the music school, we make "MORE MUSIC!" and invite about 200 music-loving people to our stage. The "Voices of the Future" with primary school classes from all over Nuremberg and the region also sound together in the opera house. And of course there is a lot of music in our clubs.

Our diverse performances offer music and stories for all ages: for the youngest in Gluck, in the children's and youth concerts or the children's operas.

These discovery tours are complemented by our educational offers for curious school classes. We are looking forward to the shared experiences!

Children’s opera: Ritter Eisenfraß

A children’s opera by Wiebke Hetmanek and Johann Casimir Eule

Why is it, again, that the two knights, Munchiron and Dealdeath, are at daggers drawn? They’re not even sure themselves now, but they keep skirmishing all the same – as a matter of principle. Spurred on by Karl the knave’s brand-new gruesome gore gadget and by the music of Jacques Offenbach.

To ‘What’s On’


On the road for all

Members of the State Philharmonic Orchestra make their way to kindergartens and schools with their instruments, experiments and stories. In their individual approaches, the whole diversity of the orchestra and the personal strengths of the musicians come to the forefront.


Strings, percussion, winds and harp invite you

Each instrument group of the State Philharmonic Orchestra presents the special features of its own instruments, sometimes eloquently, sometimes melodiously. Variety and aha effects are guaranteed in this offer for primary school classes.


In preparation for the concert visit of the State Philharmonic Orchestra in the Meistersingerhalle, students from the 8th grade onwards come to an orchestra rehearsal at the Staatstheater and experience the preparation of the professionals at first hand.

We are happy to advise teachers individually in order to put together the right offer for the group or class. We look forward to your enquiries!
