Half the singers at the Berlin Phil this Saturday will be refugees

The orchestra is putting on the premiere of Andrew Norman’s children’s opera, A Trip to the Moon.

It involves vocal soloists, some young instrumentalists and a mixed adults and children’s choir. There will also be a Youth Choir. Half of this choir is made up of refugees who arrived in Germany, mostly from the Middle East.

Welcome to Berlin.

  • Will it have the same criteria when it is performed at the Barbican with Rattle and the LSO in July?

  • 50% of the population of Germany are immigrants from WW2 and DDR! It was like an kicked ant’s nest in 1945, may Dad told me. Most German families have immigrant relations as a consequence of the two wars.
